BENEFITING: Operation Smile
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2013
We are a group of undergraduate/graduate students that are part of the Operation Smile Club at Southern Connecticut State University. As we prepare to run the ING Hartford half/marathon on October 12, 2013, we are working as a team to fundraise for the Operation Smile Organization. Operation Smile is the largest volunteer-based medical charity provides safe and effective reconstructive free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities such as cleft lip and cleft palate. Since 1982, Operation Smile has provided more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities. Each surgery costs only $240.00. Every dollar counts, donate now!
