September was certainly a month for keeping fit for our team members at The Courtyard Clinic. Our smiley dental assistant Claire successfully completed a walking marathon (yes that is 26.2 miles!!!) overnight around London finishing at Battersea Power station! Claire completed this fantastic achievement to raise money for Shine; the cancer research charity event. Claire walked with around 40000 other entrants with a total amount raised for charity being a staggering £1,855,766!!
Meanwhile the newest member to our team Dr Simon also completed his first triathlon in Brighton this month. The Brighton triathlon involves a 400m swim, 27km cycle (including a 10-minute climb up Ditchling Beacon!) and a 5km run. Simon finished his first triathlon in 1 hour and 40minutes and although he was exhausted, thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience!
