Miles of Smiles

Rinaldo's walk/run was held in Irricana on June 6th to raise money for the "Smile Train" organization. The Smile Train organization affords children in developing countries who can't afford a cleft lip repair surgery the opportunity to have their lips repaired. This is a life changing surgery for children. A complete surgery cost is $250. This cause is near and dear to Rinaldo's heart, as he was born with a cleft lip and palette and was fortunate to have his lip repaired at the age of five months. The run started from the "Full of Beans Fitness Centre"in Irricana. Through generous donations, close to $1300 was raised by the 25 runners and walkers and by other supporters of the event. The walk/run will take place again next year, so watch for details.
