About the Race

The Foundation will be fundraising around the Transamerica Chicago Triathlon. With your help, we hope to assist athletes and spectators alike, while raising money to go toward developing educational curriculum and programs that will be relevant and accessible to dental technicians and other members of the dental team as well as provide grants and scholarships to interested candidates and schools for advanced education or certification. Support us and make an investment today that will positively impact the future of your profession, forever.
