Chris Bormes, President of PREAT Corporation, competed in the Carpinteria (Calif.) Triathlon on September 27, 2015 to raise money for The Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology. PREAT was proud to raise more than $2,000 for the Foundation.
“The Foundation is doing wonderful work, and the future of Dental Laboratory Technology is very important to PREAT," Bormes says. "I wanted to do more than write a check this year, and competing in and finishing my first triathlon was a rewarding experience. I hope to recruit more athletes to join me in Carpinteria next year!”
The Foundation strives to advance the profession of dental laboratory technology by advocating for and raising awareness of the importance and necessity of dental laboratory technology education for dental technicians and other members of the dental team. The Foundation raised more than $60,000 via the second annual Race for the Future at the Music City Triathlon in Nashville, Tennessee in July.
