UNE CDM SNDA Oral Cancer 5k Run/Walk
University of New England's College of Dental Medicine Oral Cancer 5K Run/Walk for Oral Cancer Awareness
According to research from the American Cancer Society, over 50,000 people across the United States will be newly diagnosed with some form of oral and pharyngeal cancer this year, adding to the nearly 400,000 Americans currently living with an oral cancer diagnosis. Tragically, of those affected with pharyngeal, tongue, or mouth cancer, it is estimated that 11,000 will not survive their diagnosis in 2020. This spring, the Student National Dental Association at the University of New England will strive to make a difference in these statistics and celebrate the people who have fought oral cancer by providing public awareness and free oral cancer screenings during the UNE SNDA Oral Cancer 5k in Portland, Maine. In addition to our free oral cancer screenings, join us after the race for food, games, music, and more!
Registration/Bib Pick Up begins at 8:00AM Race begins at 9:00Am Oral Cancer Screenings will continue until 12:00PM
