On Saturday, March 17th, 2012, Solstice Benefits - a leading dental and vision benefits provider - participated as a 2012 Start! Heart Walk sponsor, raising over $31,880 for the American Heart Association. Solstice exceeded their $30,000 goal, almost doubling their results from 2011.
Solstice employees and their families walked together to fight cardiovascular disease, the #1 killer in men and women and the #2 killer in children, at the Heart Walk event which attracted thousands of community members. The event featured a 5K (3.1) mile journey to promote a healthier lifestyle and participants celebrated raising nearly $700,000 in lifesaving funds for heart and stroke research. As periodontal disease is linked to heart disease, Solstice showed their commitment to increasing awareness of the important Oral Health/Heart Health connection through their fundraising. Solstice, whose theme was "We Heart Your Smile" provided Heart Walk participants with toothbrushes, rinse cups, free dental plan raffle and tips promoting the Oral Health/Heart Health connection, in addition to their "Show Solstice your Smile" Photobooth, which captured the smiles of over 750 heart disease survivors, walkers, and volunteers.
