The dentists and team members at Evergreen Dental Group are incredibly proud to be able to give back to the community however we can. As part of an initiative to show how important overall health is to your oral health and provide free bikes to children in our community, we participated in this year’s Charity Bike Build in partnership with Wish for Wheels. To learn more about our experience during the event and the amazing work Evergreen does within our community, keep reading!
What is Wish for Wheels?
We’re incredibly proud to be working with organizations that bring joy to many kids across the Denver area. Wish for Wheels is a non-profit group whose goal is to help provide kindergarten kids new bikes and helmets. Not only do their bikes bring health to the kids, but incredible happiness as well. From the moment they had their first giveaway back in 2004, they knew that their program was having a truly positive effect for many low-income elementary schools.
On Saturday, July 20th Evergreen Dental Group hosted our own event and we’re happy to say it couldn’t have been more successful!
How the Event Went
The team members and dentists at the practice all got together to build bikes for children from all over the area. Evergreen Dental hosted a drawing to give out the bikes to 50 lucky kids that day. The raffle as well as the event itself was accompanied by free ice cream vendors and snow cones coming from Buddy Bites, a local food truck. The event also featured free face painting, which we know all the kids thoroughly enjoyed. It was a truly incredible experience that the practice was proud to host for the Evergreen community.
What Happened After the Event?
Once the event was complete, we found that some bikes remained and we didn’t want them to go to waste. That’s why we decided to donate them to the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center as well as Bloom Yoga. We know that they’ll be put to good use.
We love participating in events that we know are going to benefit members of the community. Is there an event that you’d like us to be a part of in the future? Give our practice a call or visit us in person to tell us about it!
