November 12th, 2015




Delta Dental of Minnesota is dedicated to keeping you healthy this holiday season! Did you know your oral health is a large component of your overall health?  To keep your oral and overall health top of mind this Thanksgiving, Delta Dental of Minnesota has signed on as the Title Sponsor of the Minneapolis Turkey Day 5K.

More than 500,000 calories are set to be burned this Thanksgiving Day, the most popular running day in the United States, at the Delta Dental Turkey Day 5K produced by Life TimeSM, The Healthy Way of Life Company—freeing up plenty of room for turkey fare after the race.

“Delta Dental of Minnesota is proud to partner with Life Time for our upcoming Title Sponsorship of the 2015 Turkey Day 5K,” said Rodney Young, Chief Executive Officer and President of Delta Dental of Minnesota. “There is clinical evidence regarding the impact oral health has on overall health, and we encourage our community to remember their oral health in their daily health and wellness routines. Oral health is a true component of a healthy lifestyle, and we hope to remind participants to take care of their teeth, not only on Thanksgiving Day when they’re eating lots of food, but every day to help keep their mouths and bodies healthy.”

“Thanksgiving morning is the best day of the year in downtown Minneapolis with people of all ages coming together for this annual, healthy tradition,” says Kelly Donahue, brand manager, Life Time Athletic Events. “We’re blessed to live in a community of cheerful givers to Second Harvest Heartland and work with like-minded partners like Delta Dental of Minnesota who help bring this event to life.”
