All of my Utah friends, you have probably heard of the Utah Food Bank and have donated to them before, but I have an event for you that is just awesome. Bring your family and friends and come dressed as your favorite Super Hero or Super Villain and come help raise money for the Utah Food Bank at the Ultradent Heroes v Villains Fundraiser. It will be on September 16th from 4-8pm at Thanksgiving Point Electrical Park.
This event will be jam packed with fun for the entire family. There will be a Super Hero/Willian tower battle 5k run, a kids 1k run, obstacle course, costume contest, lots of fun games and food trucks (yes!). You can learn more and purchase your tickets here.
Dr. Dan Fischer, the founder of Ultradent is just an amazing man. During company events, Dr. Fischer has been heard many times to say, “Eat up! This is America; no one should go hungry.” Employees of this Utah company wanted to embrace that sentiment and go one step farther to include their community in the fight against hunger. This is how the Heroes v Villains Family Event and Fundraiser came to be!
Isn’t this awesome? Now it is your turn to help out. Here is some information on what you need to do to join this event, it will be a blast and if you come, be sure to look for me and all of my little super heroes!
Ultradent Products, Inc., has wholeheartedly supported the Utah Food Bank for almost two decades! In the last nine years alone, the company and its employees have donated more than 1.5 million pounds of food!
Roseman University of Health Science, Utah Valley University’s Department of Dental Hygiene, and other local organizations have joined Ultradent in sponsoring this fun family event. Participants who dress up as their favorite superhero or the meanest villain can receive the highest glory as the winner of the costume contest! They can also master the superhero obstacle course, reign supreme in soccer Olympics, and crush the challenges in the Frisbee golf course. The little ones can even race in the Kids 1k Hero Run!
But what is the main event? A 5k like no other: The Tower Battle 5k! People don’t even have to run to join in this event! Those who choose not to run can participate as a Destroyer! Here’s how it works: Runners choose their team—hero or villain—and with every lap they complete, they will get the chance to deploy Destroyers who will fight to weaken the opposing team’s tower! The Destroyers’ choice of weapon? Water blasters, of course! It will be a battle to remember!
Tickets to participate in the challenges are available starting at $6, and pre-registration for the race registration is $21—which provides 20 meals to the Utah Food Bank! If you sign up for the race on-site, the cost is $30. Remember, all proceeds will be donated to the Utah Food Bank!

Thank you for helping Ultradent fight hunger! No matter which team you choose to fight on—heroes or villains—you will be a hero to the Utah Food Bank and to Ultradent!
