Champagne Family Dentistry was a proud sponsor of the Downtown River Run last weekend, which began and ended under the iconic Reno Arch. Individuals of all ages and running backgrounds showed up on Sunday to give their best and participate in a run that had COMMUNITY written all over it. Whether individuals showed up to run, or support their friends and family who were running—energy was high and the event was an all around success! Our team (with the help of some great kids) had the pleasure of running Aid Station #1, which was 1 mile away from the start/finish line!

What is the Downtown River Run? It’s the first of three races that together make up the RENO 5000 series—whose “mission is to produce world-class events in Reno, NV that promote health, wellness and charitable contributions.” It was a blessing to be able to sponsor the Downtown River Run and we are excited about the next two races, which will be taking place on June 29th at Hidden Valley Regional Park and September 7th at Bowers Mansion Regional Park.

Runners/walkers were able to participate in a 5K, 10K, Half-Marathon, or Full-Marathon, with kids being able to participate in their very own race—the Junior 1-Mile (where Archie from the Reno Aces made a surprise guest appearance)! In addition to the RENO 5000 series being an all around great event—the Full Marathon was officially a Boston Qualifier!

Why did we choose to sponsor this event? The team at Champagne Family Dentistry believes that in order to take care of our patients—we must not only take care of their dental health, but their overall health and well-being. We have always believed that giving back to our community is a way to make a bigger impact—not only on our patients, but also on our town that we are so proud to be a part of! We love what the RENO 5000 series stands for and we appreciate all the people and hard work that went into making the Downtown River Run a fun and healthy event for the WHOLE family!
