Video about Operation Smile:
The purpose of this event is to gather the Baton Rouge community together to help raise money to help sponsor a mission trip with Operation Smile. This is a charitable organization that provides surgeries to children with cleft lips and pallates all over the world. We are conducting a 1 mile & 5K family walk/run on July 23, 2011. Come join us!
Our theme for this event is "Light Up The Night for Operation Smile", where participants can be as creative as they want by incorporating lights and other glowing objects to their running gear. So as the night falls, attention will be on the supporters that are lighting up the night by running and walking for Operation Smile.
We are currently still looking for sponsorships for this event. We have a few different options available that we would love to discuss with those interested. Please contact Lindsay for more information at 225.296.5022. Every little bit helps.
