In July, More Than Sport was able to fund 20 cleft palate surgeries, thanks to our partnerships with GFNY and Operation Smile. Billions of people around the world currently lack access to safe and affordable surgeries. Operation Smile, with help from partners such as More Than Sport, provides free cleft palate surgeries for children and young adults in more than sixty countries.
The GFNY championship event facilitated the fundraising necessary to provide these operations. The grueling 100-mile bike ride pushes athletes to their limits, and it was great to see so many who were willing to take the time to contribute to bringing about global change. Through the Gran Fondo New York event, we were able to have a significant impact in partnership with Operation Smile.
