Join and support the Miles for Smiles youth day fun run, presented by Miltons Matsemela Attorneys, on Sunday June 16 at Melkbosstrand Beach, from 10am. Runners are invited to make a real difference in the lives of children born with cleft lips and palates. There will be amazing lucky draw prizes up for grabs and all participants will receive a medal.
Most importantly, this is a family day, so bring the kids along. The run itself is manageable for all ages at only five kilometers long. The goal is to pay for ten Facial Reconstructions (10 x R 5 500).
All the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Cipla Foundation Miles for Smiles initiative that raises funds for Operation Smile., facilitating corrective surgery on children born with cleft lips and palates. Approximately one in every 1 000 babies in Africa is born with a cleft palate or lip, and one in ten babies born with this condition will unfortunately not survive to celebrate their first birthday if they don’t get corrective surgery.
