A Marathon Success!
Our Star Runner!
Not only did Wendy beat her personal best but she raised £2000 for Motor Neurone Disease, what a star!!
One marathon in a lifetime would seem enough to satisfy anyone's desire for an adventure, however the 2014 Brighton Marathon is Wendy's third! Wendy's decision to run the 26 miles was for a cause that is very close to her heart, as in October 2013 Wendy's great friend Lisa Milella was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.
Motor neurone disease is a rare condition that affects around 2 in every 100,000 people each year and there are about 5,000 people living with the condition in the UK at any one time. The money Wendy raised is to go towards funding awareness and finding a cure.
Wendy's friend Lisa is a leading animal dentist who, along with Wendy's husband Paul, completed numerous charity trips to India and Indonesia to help cure the suffering of many animals such as Dancing Bears , slow Loris' and Orangutans!
There must be something in the air at Oak Lodge as Wendy is not the only one that has donned her running shoes to battle her way through a marathon this month. One of our lovely patients sent us a wonderful email that got all the staff at the practice smiling.
'KB' had this to say after having finished the London marathon: "Just to say thank you so much for all the amazing work on my teeth over the last few months...Here are my super brand-spanking new teeth after running 26.2 miles- thank you!"
So whether it's running a marathon or something as simple as enjoying a walk in the spring sunshine, make sure you do it with confidence in your beautiful smile!
