Noteworthy: Dentist's bike ride raises $12K for foundation

 

Menlo Park dentist Dr. Jan Gabus’ annual “Miles For Smiles” bike ride through Glacier National Park raised nearly $12,000 for the Los Altos-based Mid-Peninsula Dental Health Foundation, which provides dental care for the working poor who have no dental insurance and receive no government assistance.

Over the past nine years, Gabus’ bike rides have raised more than $104,000 for the foundation.
