FCPA Cleft Proud "Miles for Smiles"

Friday July 1 – Sunday July 31

Our Cause

July is National Cleft and Craniofacial Awareness and Prevention Month, a time to raise awareness and improve understanding of lip / palate clefts and other head or facial anomalies.

“Miles for Smiles” is a fundraising event for the Florida Cleft Palate – Craniofacial Association (FCPA). This 30+ Mile Challenge is virtual, so everyone can join in, no matter where you are or how you choose to participate. It’s easy to be part of this family-friendly event.


Here’s the challenge: Bike, walk, swim, or run 30+ miles in the month of July. You can do it all in one day or spread it out over the course of the month. Just remember to log your miles! Everyone who registers for the challenge will receive a Miles for Smiles t-shirt. Not interested in a t-shirt? No problem! You can opt out and save $20 on your registration. Children under 13 may also order a t-shirt if they wish.

All t-shirt orders are due on or before July 24. Shirts will be mailed in August.

Registration: $45 per person, 14 and older
13 and under join in the fun for FREE
Registration opens June 27, 2022, and closes July 31, 2022.

  • Form a team: Don’t want to go solo? Ask your friends, family, or co-workers to join you!
  • Raise money: Set up your personal or team event page so your friends and family can sponsor you!
