ECU student-athletes help Give Kids a Smile

On February 3rd, 48 ECU student-athletes, from a variety of sports, participated in the annual Give Kids a Smile event held at Eastern Pediatrics and Orthodontics in Greenville, NC. Give Kids a Smile is a program that was started 10 years ago by the American Dental Association (ADA). Each year on the first Friday in February, thousands of the nation’s dentists and their dental team members provide free oral health care services to children from low-income families across the country. Our student-athletes were there to comfort the kids while they were meeting with the dentists. For some of the kids, this was their first time seeing a dentist. The kids enjoyed socializing with the student-athletes and receiving balloon animals from a clown. It was a great day filled with great energy and lots of smiling faces from everyone involved.

Great job, pirates!!!
