The X Factor‘s dentist and his family are raising cash for a charity – and there are X-Factor autographs and tooth whitening treatments up for grabs.
Celebrity dentist Dr Jeremy Hill, and his family are to take on the ultimate Disney Challenge in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
And every person who donates a minimum of £1, either via the Hill family’s Just Giving page – www.justgiving.com/Hill-family or through donating in one of the collection boxes in the Centre of Dental Excellence practices will be entered into a competition to win an autograph board of all of the 2010 final X Factor contestants and a Zoom laser tooth whitening treatment.
In January, the Hill family made a New Year’s resolution to get fitter and lose weight – and they took their resolution to the extreme!
Having already lost an impressive six stone between them already, Jeremy wife Linda and sons Matthew and James are in training to cover a staggering 102km between them in just three days in the ultimate Disney Challenge:
• Friday 7 January 2011 – The whole family will complete the Disney World 5K run
• Saturday 8 January 2011 – Jeremy and Linda will each run the Disney World Half Marathon
• Sunday 9 January 2011 – Jeremy will take part in the Disney World Marathon
Jeremy says: ‘The challenge in January is probably the biggest thing we have ever attempted, so we thought we would also like to help a charity along the way.
‘Matthew’s very best friend suffers from cystic fibrosis as does someone in his school year.
‘Cysitic fibrosis is the UK’s most common life-threatening inherited disease and hopefully our running will help in some small way to finding a cure.’
Jeremy and his team personally asked each of the contestants to sign the board, when they met at the X Factor house just before the live shows started.
The Centre of Dental Excellence group has practices in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Staines.
