About This Activity

This event, organized by the OSU Student Chapter of the American Dental Hygienist';s Association (SADHA) and the OSU American Student Dental Association (ASDA), is meant to educate and build awareness about children';s oral health, while also raising money to help the Give Kids a Smile free dental care day. This race offers all levels of runners the perfect opportunity to shake out their legs, test their speed, and gear up for an active racing season.

Give Kids a Smile (GKAS) is a program dedicated to providing free dental services to underserved children. In September 2012, the ASDA members at the OSU College of Dentistry created the first ever Give Kids a Smile Day at the OSU Dental Clinic. These events are run solely on donations and volunteers, and our first event was a huge success! Our goal for the next event is to provide care to even more deserving children in the Columbus community!
