5 Year 5K Charity Run

← Return to Blog

In celebration of five years at Diamond Dental Clinic, on Saturday September 6th 2014, we hosted our first 5K charity run. All proceeds from the event went to Cancer Research UK, with a total of £2051 raised for this great cause.

With ideal running conditions, over 100 runners took to the 5K route at the grounds of Loughry College. There was a fantastic turnout from local running clubs, along with patients of the practice and members of the public; all supporting the local charity event.

After the run, there was a well received buffet, sponsored by local business Brown Sugar and Corner Cake Shop in the hall at Mid Ulster Sports Arena (MUSA). Prizes were then given out for the top 3 male and top 3 female finishers. A raffle with the prize of teeth whitening was won by Patricia McGuigan.

We would like to thank Loughry College and MUSA for providing us with the perfect venue for the occasion. We would also like to thank all our sponsors that made the event possible: Southern Cross, JL Dental Lab, Henry Schein, Denplan, SMC Dental Lab, Dornan Wholesale, TES, Dentaquip, Sheehy’s, Supervalu, FSL Electronics, Inflatables NI, Allen’s Chemist, Huttons, Pretty Dolly, TIME, Diamond Delights and Dollface.
