On Saturday, October 6th , the Imagine Dentistry team and their families arrived
in uptown Charlotte to join approximately 17,000 other cheerful runners and walkers. Everyone was there to raise money and make a difference for those who have (or had) breast cancer and for those who will be diagnosed.
According to the Komen website
, it is estimated that there will be 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer among U.S. women this year. Everyone is affected by breast cancer. It may not be you. It may not be your wife, but it could be your daughter, your mother, your neighbor or your friend. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. That means that you will experience it at some point.
Imagine Dentistry cares about the whole person, not just teeth. As the motto states, "Healthy Smiles. Healthy Lifestyles." A healthy mouth contributes to a healthy body.
A good time was had by the team--walking with their husbands, children and even a family dog. This is a close-knit dental office team who enjoys time together and proudly supports local and national charities.
