Sparkle Dental labs and Genix Healthcare Ltd sponsored ‘Levi’s Star’ in the 2015 ‘Dragon Boat Challenge’ fun day which was held on Saturday 11th July at Pugneys Country Park Lake in Wakefield. The event was organised by the Rotary clubs of Huddersfield and Wakefield Chantry.
Levi’s Star is a children’s brain tumour charity, established in August 2008 in memory of a little boy Levi, who tragically lost his life to a brain tumour. Levi was only 6½ years old. Levi’s Star supports children with brain tumour’s and their families throughout Yorkshire with three objectives:
The provision of grants and financial assistance, promoting research into Centre’s for cures for brain tumour’s and raising awareness of brain tumour symptoms.
By sponsoring ‘Levi’s Star’ boat and crew we hope to help in the achievement of these three vital, life saving objectives.
The two rotary clubs are committed to sponsoring various charities, both local and further afield with the help and support of corporate sponsorship and advertising. The dragon boat race seen teams racing three times in heats against the clock with the fastest times going through to the final.
Well done to ‘Levi’s Star’ boat and crew for raising vital funds for this well deserving charity. A cause we were honoured and proud to be a part of.
