Moveit4smiles is an oral health initiative with a simple aim - to get moving and raise money in the fight against mouth cancer.

We are asking those who are passionate about raising awareness of oral health and wellbeing to get involved and help make a difference to the awareness of a disease which takes more than 2,000 lives in the UK every year.

By supporting Moveit4Smiles you will help us to:

  • Increase awareness of mouth cancer.
  • Increase awareness about the importance of good oral health and hygiene, and the links towards general health.
  • Increase awareness of dental hygienists and therapists and their role within the dental team.

How you can take part in Moveit4smiles

Moveit4smiles is all about being active while raising awareness of oral health.

We are encouraging you to take part in sponsored walks, swims, cycles and runs. You can either:

  • Organise an event yourself and ask your family, friends, colleagues and local community to join in.
  • Take part in somebody else’s event.
  • Support the cause by donating.

Your next steps...

  • If you're short of time and are unable to organise something yourself, then find a Moveit4smiles campaign to support. Contact the fundraiser and there may be a way you can join in yourself.  
  • If you don't fancy like taking part, that's okay. There's still another way you can support Moveit4smiles. Simply 'donate to the Moveit4smiles appeal' and be assured that all donations you make will go towards the Oral Health Foundation and Mouth Cancer Action.
