Delta Dental of Idaho employees “move for fun, get fit for life.”
“Move for fun, get fit for life.” That’s the motto of the annual FitOne Boise event. As part of our sponsorship, Delta Dental of Idaho employees manned the interactive booth at the Healthy Living Expo last week. Another set of employees also formed Team Grin and participated in the race over the weekend.
St. Luke’s is the presenting sponsor of FitOne, whose mission is to build healthier communities through fun, active living. St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital is the primary beneficiary of the event. Last year, over $70,000 was raised for programs like Bogus Basin Summer Camp which teaches local kids how to lead a healthy lifestyle through dietary choices and physical activity.
The Delta Dental of Idaho booth offered up the ever-popular prize wheel for adults, along with learning tools for children like dental health-related picture books, an oversized toothbrush and mouth display to teach proper oral cleanliness habits, and a topical coloring book with crayons. There were plenty of giveaways with toothbrushes and lip balm being the MVP’s (most valued pick-ups). It’s estimated that over 6,000 race-goers stopped by the booth over the course of two days.
On Saturday, Team Grin took to the streets of downtown Boise and participated in the 5k, 10k, and half marathon. We even had a toothfairy-in-training as one employee’s daughter joined the fun in the stroller 5k. All in all, nearly a dozen employees showed their Delta Dental pride as they crossed finish line.
