Smile Train (International)

Why run for us?

Many children with clefts around the world live in isolation, but more importantly, have difficulty eating, breathing, hearing, and speaking. Cleft surgery is a safe, permanent solution with an immediate impact. Smile Train’s sustainable model provides training, funding, and resources to empower local doctors in 70+ countries to provide these lifesaving surgeries and other essential cleft care 100%-free, in their own communities. I am so honored to run for this cause but even more honored that I get to work at an organization that provide life-changing cleft surgery to children around the world. Register for the 2023 BMW Berlin Marathon with Smile Train today and secure your spot.
