BENEFITING: MIRACLEFEET

Michael Given

THE STORY:

I am running 20 miles on World Clubfoot Day to support MiracleFeet's vision of a world in which all children born with clubfoot receive treatment, enabling them to live fully productive, active and healthy lives. Our daughter was born with bilateral clubfoot and I have personally experienced the miracle of non-surgical treatment. She is now fully corrected and walks, runs, and plays sports normally like any other child.  We were lucky, but know there are many others that are less fortunate. 
ABOUT CLUBFOOT:
Clubfoot affects one out of every 800 children worldwide, making it one of the most common birth defects in the world. In developing countries, children living with untreated clubfoot face incredible hurdles their whole lives. Along with stigma and discrimination, they are often left alone and hidden away because the family is ashamed. Because walking is so difficult, they are among the least likely to enjoy the benefits of education and health care. Even worse, children with clubfoot are subject to higher risks of neglect, poverty, physical, and sexual abuse.
ABOUT MIRACLEFEET:
MiracleFeet provides organizational, technical, and financial support to over 150 clinics throughout the world in order to provide treatment to children born with clubfoot. The treatment costs only $250 per child and is free or extremely low-cost for the families who receive it.
