The Absolute Dental Cares team has done it again! In support of the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation, Absolute Dental raised thousands of dollars and participated in the 30th Annual Superhero 5K in Las Vegas. The money raised goes directly to local families with children battling childhood cancer.
Absolute Dental Fundraising Goals
Absolute Dental smashed its fundraising goal of $10,000 by raising $26,241.78 and took second place for the most funds raised in the state. The Absolute Dental team and their families also showed their support by participating in the Superhero 5K run, complete with superhero capes and all.
Each individual Absolute Dental practice donated both time and money towards this initiative, with the 4035 S. Durango location raising the most contributions out of all 28 participating locations. Congratulations to the team on their outstanding efforts!
