Gensmile Tooth Fairy Run
Fun! Free costume! Free food! Fundraising!
Have fun running (or walking!) to support four great charities. An easy, flat 5 km and then a well-earned brunch.
Every participant will be supplied with wings, a wand and a tutu (just put them on top of your running kit or make them part of a costume) to make this a spectacular celebration of the importance of helping people get the dental care they need internationally and at home. Bring your friends and family to run or support.
The run to be held at 10.30am on Sunday 24 April 2022 to be followed by free brunch for all. Lydiard Park (SN5 3PA) is a beautiful and historical venue but also easily accessible from junction 16 of the M4, just outside of Swindon.

Standard Individual Entry: £25 (early bird ticket = £15*)
Standard Team Entry: £60 for 4 (early bird ticket = £40*)

We train rural-based health workers in developing countries, providing them with the skills, equipment and resources that they will need to provide emergency dental care in a world where over 70% of the population currently do not have access to even basic dental treatment.
The ultimate goal of Bridge2Aid is to enable training in emergency dental care for health workers in all remote rural communities of developing countries. Our vision is a world free from dental pain.
In the UK, Dentaid provides free dental care for homeless and vulnerable people. Our mobile dental units visit hostels, day centres and night shelters providing emergency treatment for people who find it difficult to access dental care. Overseas, Dentaid has worked in more than 70 countries providing safe, sustainable dental treatment in poor and remote communities. We support dentists around the world by providing equipment, running oral health programmes and sending teams of volunteer dental professionals to help them reach more patients. DentaidBoxes are a fully portable dental surgery that can be used to provide care anywhere in the world.

Our priority is to address root causes and take people out of dental pain. In all areas of Dental Mavericks activities, we champion an ethos of high-quality care that is patient-led and dignified.
