The road to Hopkinton for Team Forsyth #miles4smiles started over 100 years ago by the Forsyth Brothers. In 1910 they started the Forsyth Dental Infirmary for Children. Today our runners are running for research, for health, and for SMILES.
The Forsyth Institute began its journey to improve oral health in 1910. In that time, the Forsyth transformed oral health care practices, and discovered surprising links between oral conditions and global health threats like heart disease, diabetes, and even certain cancers and infectious diseases.
Oral health research is a powerful platform for solving personal and community health challeges.
By supporting our runners you are supporting the passionate scientists and their innovative research that benefits us all. You are supporting our clinical trials that improves the health of all of us and you are supporting ForsythKids that brings the smile to the faces of thousands of inner city children every year.
