CONCORD, N.H., December 16, 2001 -- Northeast Delta Dental has supported the New Hampshire Jingle Bell Run to raise funds for the Arthritis Foundation for the past 16 years. This year, it was the presenting sponsor of the run that took place on December 5 at Delta Dental stadium in Manchester, NH. Northeast Delta Dental also sent a team. Overall, more than 100 people dressed up in holiday outfits to support the work of the Arthritis Foundation.
This year, for the first time, Northeast Delta Dental also put together a national fundraising team that included Delta Dental member companies serving Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Wisconsin. Delta Dental member companies partner to raise funds for this important health initiative because they share a belief that oral health is critical to overall health and wellness. Collectively, they have the largest network of dentists and provide coverage to more Americans than any other dental insurance company, offering dental coverage in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and other U.S. territories.
Together, Northeast Delta Dental and its friends helped raise more than $45,000 for the Arthritis Foundation—$15,000 over its fundraising goal—because they believe in its mission. The Foundation not only works toward finding a cure, it also offers a lifeline for the 54 million people living with arthritis, connecting them to a broader community and providing information and support.
