Many thanks to all for joining the 2020 CleftStrong 5k and Kids Fun Run virtual event! Across the world, a little over 230 participants joined virtually to support those born with cleft lip, cleft palate, and other craniofacial conditions this year! Even amidst the new challenges that we are all facing, you made it possible to be together and support one another.
We are excited to announce that together with sponsors and donors and virtual participants , we raised a little over $13,000.00 in support of the annual CleftStrong 5k and the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association's (ACPA) mission to advance cleft and craniofacial research and patient care! Additionally, participants came together through the 2020 CleftStrong Silent Auction and other donors to support local cleft and craniofacial patients in need, raising approximately $1,725.00 to be donated directly to the ACPA approved Cleft and Craniofacial teams at The Children's Hospital of San Antonio and San Antonio's Methodist Children's Hospital in the coming weeks. The 2020 CleftStrong 5k raised a grand total of just over $14,700.00 in support of its mission. Thank you!
Congratulations to the 2020 CleftStrong 5k Most Creative Adult Costume Prize 3rd time winner, Ms. Annette Ramirez and Most Creative Child Costume Prize winner, Nathan Arevalo (pictured above) and thank you to the many fundraising teams who raised approximately $4,867.00, collectively. Congratulations to Triston's Titans for coming in as our highest fundraising team winner and Kayce's Pit Crew (pictured below) who came in as our largest team winner!
We'd like to send a special thank you to those who joined in volunteering countless hours to help make this event successful and special this year. Your creativity and drive given the circumstances of this year made it all possible. To our corporate sponsors and personal donors, thank you for believing in our mission and choosing our organization to support.
