A smile brightens up your face, making you more attractive. Smiling or to be smiled at makes you feel better even when you’re in a bad mood. Science say you’ll look younger if you smile often because you use up less muscles than when you frown. Have you thought about giving someone a nice smile? Now you can give one to a child through Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation, Philippines Inc. (NCFPI).

Join the Miles for Smiles 2011 – Run for Cleft Care race on September 18, 2011 at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig at 5AM. NCFPI is a non-profit organization whose goal is to establish craniofacial centers that provide world-clas services to Filipinos, especially the indigents. The event is being presented in cooperation with the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in the Philippines and The Smile Train. This is to help raise public awareness that “bingot” or cleft and other craniofacial conditions can be treated. All it takes is a 90-minute surgery to make a world of difference.

You can join as an individual runner or form a group of 10 by bringing together your families, friends and colleagues to sponsor a child with cleft and give him/her a nice smile.

Drinks will be provided at strategic areas in the race course and at the finish line. Roving and standby medical aid and ambulance services will be available throughout the event. Winners will receive Medals and Premium Items.
