Our practice is made up of very special people and I’m not talking about the people that work here, though they are special too. Every dental appointment one of our team steps into is way more than just that. It is an opportunity for us to learn something new, be inspired, gain a new perspective and more. The possibilities are endless and that excites us. We absolutely LOVE hearing about your interests, trials and successes as well as your everyday life. We finish each day far more enriched than when we began.
Just last week we learned about a cause one of our special families is supporting. PHIT America is a cause and campaign dedicated to increasing physical activity and fitness to improve the health of all Americans. PHIT stands for Personal Health Investment Today. Doug Gordon is riding across America, 2,678 miles, in support of PHIT America. It should take him 60 days and he sets off from Charleston on February 15th.
PHIT America will use at least 80% of the funds received to get more kids active at least 3 times per week. Their goal is to get 1 million kids off the couch, active and playing sports by 2020. Ride Doug Ride is the first of many PHIT KIDS Charity Events.
“In all my years in the sports and fitness industry and working for Speedo, I became aware that fewer and fewer kids are active and playing sports. This is a travesty for their personal health but a huge issue for the future of the sports industry too. So, I decided to do something special and invite others to ‘ride with me’ in this unique event. This Ride Across America will not be easy but it is necessary. Supporting a great cause and campaign like PHIT America is necessary for the future of our industry and America too,” Doug Gordon.
We encourage you to learn more about this cause and to please consider donating. Visit ridedougride.org for more information.
RIDE, DOUG, RIDE!!!
