Local Fresno Dental Practice, Affinity Dental of Fresno, Goes for the Gold in 5k Race to End Hunger

September 17, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Affinity Dental, a Fresno dental practice, has announced the successful completion of their participation in the Run with Realtors to End Hunger event. The 5k race, which took place on August 24th at Woodward Park in Fresno, was held to benefit the Community Food Bank of Fresno. Taking part in the event, members of the Fresno dental family practice ran in the 5k race and took medals for the race as well. It is their plan to get involved in other community events like this in the near future.

"We are continually looking for ways that Affinity Dental can give back to our community, said A Gerald Michels, DDS.

The team at Affinity Dental of Fresno appreciate their patients so much that it only seems fitting to hit the pavement with them. The team believes that joining forces to better the lives of the less fortunate is the best way to express their appreciation and care for their dental patients and community members.

"A run like this is such a simple measure to rally behind," explained Dr. Michels, "and I believe I have the right staff to do more."

Dr. Michels believes that if his staff takes part in events likes the Run with Realtors to End Hunger event, than it might inspire other professional practices in the area to do the same. "When they see us out there on the course, than it may inspire them to do the same, "suggested Dr. Michels. The primary dentist at Affinity Dental went onto explain that "there is power in numbers and it if we positively impact the lives of a handful of people through this outreach event, it makes the day worth it."

The Fresno-based dental office hopes to participate in and even host other successful charity endeavors in the near future.
