Participation in the Virtual Race for Smiles is a great opportunity for team building and community engagement. Here are some tips to get your community and teams involved:
  • Encourage community participation by sending this customizable press release to your local media announcing Race for Smiles, your support of domestic violence awareness, and Give Back a Smile
  • Dental offices - encourage your patients to participate through social media posts and by distributing in office flyers (flyers coming soon). Consider making an event out of it.
