Siobhan Kyle, one of the Oral Surgery Associate Specialists at Glasgow Dental Hospital, completed her first marathon on the 29th September 2019, running the Berlin marathon in a great time of 3.55.40.
Siobhan has been a member of MAV since we were founded in 2008 and regularly visits schools in the Glasgow area. Her running career started with our first MAV run in 2015 and she now regularly competes in 10K and half marathons. Siobhan's marathon run raised a huge £1493.75 for MAV. Congratulations to Siobhan on her huge achievement and many thanks to everyone who sponsored her.
Five of Glasgow Royal Infirmary's Emergency Medicine Registrars took on their first triathlon challenge, competing in the 'Wee Beastie' at Loch Lomond in July 2019.
The event included a 400m open water swim, 9K cycle and concluded with a 3K run. Congratulations to Jen, Carole, Diane, Amy, Lizzie and Alice who raised £3334.60 for Navigator's Running on Empty fund. The Running on Empty fund allows the Navigators to provide crisis support to clients at times when no other help is available.
The Oral Surgery Department and a few of their friends and family along with Tam from Navigator took to the dodgeball court at the 205 Field Hospital in Glasgow for a hotly contested dodgeball tournament with Emergency Department colleagues from Hairmyres, Monklands and St John's and staff from Acute Receiving at RIE and of course the Field Hospital themselves. £600 was raised and split between MAV and Alzheimers Scotland. Big thank you to St John's ED and the 205 Field Hospital for organising and hosting.
Regular donations of small amounts can make a huge difference to a small charity like ours.
