On Saturday, volunteers from Oral Health Foundation, TePe, Dental Health Spa, the Swiss Dental Academy, Revive Dental Care and others, completed the Striding Edge challenge for Moveit4smiles.

Striding Edge is a mountain ridge in the Lake District. The team did the Helvellyn route, which took around 7 hours to complete and saw them reach summits of more than 3,000 feet. It was a 7 mile-long journey and was extremely difficult given the high exposure on narrow, rocky ridges, along with wet and windy weather.

You can still show your support for those who took on this challenge, and for the cause which they are raising money for.

How your donation will help  

Earlier this summer, after many years of campaigning, Scotland, Wales and England all announced that the HPV vaccination programme will be extended to boys. This is a terrific result and will mean that 400,000 British boys every year will now be protected against mouth cancer and other HPV-related disease. This is a monumental achievement and will ultimately save lives.

Your donations to Moveit4smiles has helped raise thousands of pounds to support and fund campaign groups and passionate individuals to achieve this verdict.

Support for Moveit4smiles has also helped raise awareness of mouth cancer by providing key information, advice and education to groups all around the UK. Last year, potentially lifesaving mouth cancer information was seen by more than six million people across waiting rooms, hospitals, shopping centres and workplaces. But, with the number of mouth cancer cases continuing to increase, we need your continued support to raise awareness of this devastating disease.
