- Henry Schein UK participates in “Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge” to raise funds for mental health charities

Gillingham – 18 September 2023: On 9 September 2023, Team Schein Members from Henry Schein Dental, Henry Schein Medical, Optident, BioHorizons Camlog, and the Henry Schein One brands Software of Excellence and Dentally, came together for a charitable outdoor challenge. Their mission was to raise £7,000 in support of health charities.

In the challenge, 25 team members completed a 24-mile walk round trip that included 1,585 meters of ascent. The three peaks are Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside, and Ingleborough.

The Team Schein Members raised funds for three dedicated charities: Mind, which provides advice and support to anyone experiencing mental health problems, Dementia UK, a charity that helps the families of people suffering from dementia, and Naomi House & Jacksplace, a children's hospice that provides care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions. These charities have had a significant impact on many of those who walked the three peaks and have relentlessly supported many other Team Schein Members and families affected by mental diseases in the country. 

“Overcoming this great challenge wasn't easy, but we knew we were doing it for great causes,” said James Salter, Corporate Social Responsibility Co-Chair, Henry Schein UK. “We are deeply thankful to everyone who contributed to our fundraising page. Those contributions will make a difference to the lives of many people affected by mental health issues and children with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions.” 

The Yorkshire Three Peak Challenge initiative is part of Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility programme. It stands on five pillars: empowering Team Schein to reach their potential, advancing health equity and expanding access to care for underserved communities, accelerating environmental sustainability, strengthening, and diversifying our supply chain, and maintaining strong ethical governance. Health care activities supported by Henry Schein Cares focus on four main areas: wellness, treatment, prevention, and education; capacity building; emergency preparedness and disaster response; and health system strengthening.
