Take the Virtual Challenge!

ADHA Institute for Oral Health (IOH)

The IOH has a special place in my heart because for 15 years of my dental hygiene career I was the manager/public health hygienist for a small non-profit clinic in Las Vegas that provided access to oral health care for teens, ages 12-18, and who had no dental insurance coverage. In that 15-year time span, ADHA’s Institute for Oral Health awarded the clinic two $5000 grants to support the vital care being provided to the teen patients there. ADHA’s support of the clinic, the work I was doing there, and of me personally, will always be one of the most significant benefits of my association with ADHA and my career. Please consider forming a virtual team in support of the Institute for Oral Health, and help District XII reach our goal of $5000 this year.


Virtual 5K – Here’s how to participate virtually! It’s easy – just pick a time from June 20-25 and run or walk a 5K in your community (or just have a social event)! Wear your t-shirts and medals at your event and take a picture. Send your pictures to me, Annette Lincicome, your ADHA District XII Trustee. I’ll post your pictures on the District XII Facebook page from Louisville. The component virtual team raising the most money will receive an additional $50 from me to add to the funds they raise for the IOH. Donors donating $50 or more are recognized in Access magazine on the IOH Honor Roll, so your component virtual team will earn national recognition for your donation! 

  • Start a virtual component team in support of the District XII Transformers!
    • Ask your component members to join your team!
    • Fundraise to support the IOH Foundation!


$15 registration fee (not counted as part of your donation) gets you an event T-shirt   and a finisher’s medal! Join today at www.crowdrise.com/o/en/campaign/district-xii-transformers2
