myFace is hosting Races for Faces, its annual walk and carnival, on September 15 at Randall’s Island Park in New York City.
Races for Faces is not only one of myFace’s most important fundraising events of the year, but it also serves to raise a tremendous amount of awareness for children and adults with craniofacial differences.
Races for Faces is an important fundraising walk and carnival for all ages to help myFace fulfill its mission of providing medical, dental, speech and psychosocial services to children and adults with craniofacial differences. The organization expects more than 500 patients, families and supporters to come together to show their support and raise awareness for this cause. In addition to the walk, it’s a fun-filled family day with lots of activities for children of all ages, including a carnival, games, obstacles course and an awards ceremony.
By joining myFace at Races for Faces (whether you register as an individual, form a team or join a team, or be a virtual walker and walk from where you are), attendees allow myFace to ensure that those with craniofacial conditions have access to cutting-edge, comprehensive care at the myFace Center for Craniofacial Care at NYU Langone Health, as well as support groups, networking events, free accommodations and travel assistance. These are the services that help our patients lead full and productive lives.
Quip, Real Food Blends, Van Leeuwen and Walter the Wanderer are sponsors and supporters of the event. Jeff Smith, WABC meteorologist, will be emceeing the event.
myFace is a leading non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of patients with facial differences. Every hour a child is born in the United States with a craniofacial condition which uniquely impacts both the body and spirit. Each year, the faces of another 100,000 individuals are disfigured through accident or disease.
