Dr. Maryam Seifi and her Starbrite Dental team continued their proud support of the Special Olympics of Maryland Organization (SOMO) in Montgomery County this October when they came out in force at the 4th Annual SOMO Inspirational 2K/5K Walk/Run. SOMO is an organization focused on bringing people together to create a healthier and more welcoming world for the Special Olympics and its athletes, focusing on mutual respect for everyone in our communities. That is a mission that is shared by both Dr. Seifi and her caring staff.
At StarBrite Dental, Dr. Seifi and her staff work every day to bring health, understanding, and gentle care to all of her patients. Here’s what she has to say about working with SOMO: "I love supporting the community and working with positive community events like this one! We are super excited to be a SOMO community sponsor and it has become a little tradition at the office."
This year was even more special, as Dr. Seifi’s own daughter, Nicole Powell, who was a Gold Medal Winner for Team USA in Acrobatic Gymnastics in Poland last year , was invited to put on a special, inspirational routine. Her routine showcased some of the very same acrobatics that won her Gold in 2016. Nicole knows the value of teamwork, of practice, and of never giving up - values that the Special Olympics imbues into the athletes competing every year at their events. Nicole was joined by her brother; Shawn Powell, who has recently joined her in an Acro partnership. Their incredible performance was inspirational to the Special Olympics athletes, their families and participants in the event.
