It is with great excitement CleftStrong announces its first ever exclusive jeweler for the CleftStrong annual 5k: fellow cleft strong and proud mom, Founder of Cleft Connect, and Designer/Owner of Inspired by Colton Jewelry for a Cause, Melinda Bly. Melinda has designed and donated several pieces of jewelry for the upcoming event, two of which will be awarded to our overall male and female finishers after the race! "Finishing every charity run is unique in its own special way, and this year we will have the absolute pleasure of awarding our cleft supportive top male and female finishers with a design from one of our very own in the amazing cleft community" says race organizer, Chelsea Ortiz. "Imagine designing and preparing handmade and heartfelt donations while also preparing for hurricane Irma to make direct landfall in your state. Now you have just a glimpse into this special lady's heart."
CleftStrong is grateful for all of the support it has received to date and is hard at work preparing for October 15th!
We are just 2 weeks and 4 days away from our deadline to receive a customized race day bib with your registration! Go ahead....
A word from Melinda:
Spread the word for the month of September! My ETSY store is offering 15% off all cleft related product to celebrate cleft & craniofacial awareness month!
All sales go to a special project I started with a fellow cleft mom Lisa Wyzlic. Every month, we send out cleft mom packages. Everything we are doing is being supported by our small business companies we run. So far we have sent out 10 packages filled with love and support for the moms.
As hard as you fight, we will strive to fight alongside you.
