Brighton Marathon April 2013

CamKids has a few remaining places for the 2013 Brighton Marathon. Public places have already sold out and very few charity places are still available. The event will take place on Sunday 14th April 2013.

The minimum sponsorship amount is £500 per runner which will pay for the running costs of one of our rural schools for a year. Why not make it your New Year's resolution to get fit and help the kids at the same time.

Participants will receive a CamKids T-shirt, Running Vest and Charity Wristbands and we will help you set up a fundraising page on JustGiving, to make collecting sponsorship money easy.

There are a limited number of places - if you are interested, please email:

Calling all dentists, hygienists, therapists and senior dental students - SEAL CAMBODIA PROJECT NEEDS YOU!

SEAL CAMBODIA is an exciting 3 year project to save children's teeth in Cambodia, where the levels of dental decay are among the highest in the world (8-10 decayed, missing or filled teeth at age 5).

The project is supported by The Cambodian Children's Charity (CamKids), the Global Child Dental Fund (GCDF) and GC (Asia) Company and has the approval of the Cambodian Ministries of Education and Health. It aims to seal the first permanent molars of 60,000 Grade 2 children over the next three years.

Local partners for the project in Cambodia are One-2-One, International University, the Oral Health Office of the Ministry of Health, the Pediatric Clinic of the University of Health Sciences, Cambodia World Family, the Cambodian Dental Association and the Regional Nurses Training Centre in Kampong Cham. They are providing some of their own members and personnel - but we also need your help!
We are seeking self-funded overseas volunteer dentists, hygienists, therapists and senior dental students to come to Cambodia for one to two weeks, to work in primary schools to achieve our goal of sealing 20,000 children per year. We can arrange pick up from the airport, accommodation, local sightseeing, transport to and from the schools, and assistants to work with you. Training on how the program works and the protocols for GIC sealant placement will be given. Instruments and materials needed will be provided.

We know this project will make a huge difference to the dental health of these children - most of whom presently face extraction of many of their teeth by the time they reach high school. For more information please contact the SEAL CAMBODIA team at:

We look forward to seeing you in Cambodia soon!
