BENEFITING: Operation Smile

EVENT DATE: May 15, 2011

THE STORY:

As many of you know, Operation Smile is a very important part of my life. I worked for them after college - at which time I met my wife, Christy, who was volunteering for the organization. I have been on 10 medical trips with them, including a trip to Russia in summer 2001 with Christy. Primarily, Operation Smile provides free reconstructive surgery to children with facial deformities. As stated in their mission, they "mobilize a world of generous hearts to heal children's smiles and transform lives across the globe." You can learn more about the organization at www.operationsmile.org.

Last summer, I finished my first sprint triathlon and loved it. This summer I wanted to combine this new passion with an old one - Operation Smile. I am training to complete 3 olympic length and 3 sprint triathlons this summer, starting with the Littlefoot Triathlon in Morrison, Colorado on May 15 (see below for the full schedule). I am asking my friends, family, and colleagues to consider making a series of modest donations (or single donation if easier) correlating to each event - maybe $5 for each sprint and $10 for each full, for example. Christy & I will match all contributions $1:$1, in hopes that with a lot of participation we will all generate a total of $20,000 for Operation Smile. That amount will bring life-changing surgery to 80 children.

I will provide donors with brief updates upon completion of each event. Your tax-deductible donations made via this site will go directly to Operation Smile and you will receive a receipt for your records. The website charges a small processing fee for offering this service. Donations may be made anonymously if you prefer.

Thank you all very much for your consideration and generosity. Together we will bring new hope, opportunity, and health to dozens of children around the world.
