THE STORY:

 

Hi everyone! Many of you already know that I've been working at Smile Train for the past few years and I love what I do! I'm lucky enough to go to work every day knowing that my work will have a postive impact on children's lives around the world. Racing for Team EMPOWER is just one more way I can help children suffering from cleft and I'm so excited to get started!

I played two sports in college but since graduating, nothing has been able to fill the void of the competition, self-motivation and excitiment that playing sports brings. Until now. Joining Team EMPOWER and racing for Smile Train has given me the opportunity to be a part of a team that's working towards a common goal once again. 

I look forward to the journey ahead. Thank you for your support!

About Smile Train:

Smile Train is an international children's charity that provides free surgery to poor children suffering from cleft lip and cleft palate. Children born with cleft cannot eat or speak properly, aren't allowed to attend school or hold a job and face very difficult lives of shame and isolation, pain and heartache. Some children are even abandoned or killed—all because of the way they look. Their clefts usually go untreated because they are too poor to afford the simple repair surgery that takes as little as 45 minutes and costs as little as $250 dollars. Yet with your help, we can save these children and give them the life changing surgery they both need and deserve. 80% of all money collected goes directly for surgery. Doctors in the countries where the children are being treated are trained in the techniques and monitored for the quality of their surgeries by experienced U.S. physicians so that children receive the best possible care.
