Teams are being invited to sign up for the first ever Together Dental Monopoly Run Challenge being held in London on Saturday 23 June.
This is the chance to play Monopoly for real by dashing around the capital’s famous streets and landmarks, scoring points along the way. The event is being jointly run by the dental charities Bridge2Aid and Dentaid as part of their Together Dental fundraising partnership.
All the teams will set off from Baker Street at 11am and will have six hours to visit as many places on the Monopoly board as possible. There are lots of bonus points to pick up for spotting extra features from the famous game and being the first team to be photographed in each location.
Teams will comprise up to six players who must work together to devise their route around the Monopoly board. The must travel on foot, on the underground or by bus and stay together with every team member appearing in each photo.
Entry is charged at £200 per team and all the money will be shared equally between Dentaid and Bridge2Aid to help them improve access to dental care around the world.
The charities are inviting practices, dental companies and others in the industry to be part of the event which is the first in a series of Together Dental fundraising initiatives.
“We are really excited about this event,” said Paul Tasman from Bridge2Aid. “It’s a first for us and it’s going to be a huge amount of fun and a brilliant day out. We’ve already had a very positive reaction and it’s going to be spectacular.”
Andy Evans from Dentaid added: “The Together Dental partnership is a fantastic opportunity for Dentaid and Bridge2Aid to fundraise together so we can help more people living in poor and remote communities around the world to access the dental care they need. We have lots of exciting events coming up and the Monopoly Run will be a great way to start them.”
