About the organization
All over the world, children are born with facial deformities that inhibit their ability to live a normal life. Every year, over 200,000 children are born with cleft lip and cleft palate. Many of these children are unable to eat, speak, or smile. Operation Smile is an organization dedicated to raising money for surgically correcting these deformities.

In 2008, a group of BYU students organized the first Operation Smile 5K. Since then, the annual race has collected a total of over $10,000 to donate to Operation Smile. This has funded more than 40 surgeries for children who could not otherwise afford it. Your participation or donation is appreciated.
