BENEFITING: The Foundation for Faces of Children
EVENT: Paces for Faces 2014
EVENT DATE: Sep 13, 2014
For the sixth year in a row, we are participating in the Paces for Faces Walk to raise money for the Foundation for Faces of Children, an organization started over 25 years ago by Dr. John Mulliken, a world-class cleft surgeon who we were so fortunate to meet on the beginning of our unexpected journey down this road back in 2009. It's hard to believe that six years ago, we participated in our first walk as new parents with a little 8-week-old baby who had not yet been through his first surgery. And this year, we registered as a family of five (!) with Elan heading into Kindergarten, and ready to take on the world with his million dollar smile.
We've been so grateful and humbled by the support all of our friends and family have shown us the last five years. We love returning to this walk year after year and hope that our participation will help Elan stay connected to a community of friends who can provide him support as he faces the challenges that come with growing up with a craniofacial disorder. We hope you'll consider contributing to our efforts again and supporting this small but much-needed charity that provides support to families just like ours.
