Elleven’s colourful charity run
To date the team at Elleven has raised a total of £3,865.
The team included clinicians, nurses and reception staff and even had a plus one with Sameer and Shivani Patel’s (Elleven’s owners) four-year-old daughter taking part.
Each year, Elleven chooses a charity to work with and sets out to either raise money or use the practice’s skill set to help those who need dental work.
This year’s choice of charity helps children in developing countries that have cleft lip and palate.
Often, people living with clefts are socially rejected but also have trouble eating, breathing and speaking.
Speaking of Elleven’s contribution Smile Train said: ‘Smile Train and Elleven Dental have formed a strong partnership through our shared mission to give people bright smiles.
'It is such a pleasure to see their passion and dedication to our cause, which gives children born with cleft in developing countries a second chance at life.
'The whole Elleven Dental team show a huge commitment to supporting our work; it was a delight to watch them complete the Color Run and see their phenomenal fundraising achievements for Smile Train!’
The Color Run – the happiest 5k run in the world – was set up to promote healthiness and happiness, an appropriate choice of event for Elleven’s choice of charity.
