Race Proceeds of $12,000 Donated to Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Cleft Team

Earlier this year, Shreveport Bossier Family Dental Care hosted the third annual 3 Miles for Free Smiles Race to raise awareness and financial support for children born with cleft lip and cleft palate deformities to help them receive life-saving surgeries. Two out of every 1,000 births result in the need for this type of surgery.

Race proceeds are donated to the LSU Health Shreveport Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Cleft Team and Shriners Hospitals for Children - Shreveport, specifically for cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries.

This week, Shreveport Bossier Family Dental Care presented a check to the LSUHS Foundation and Shriners Hospital in Shreveport for $12,000! Thank you to everyone who supported and participated in 3 Miles for Free Smiles for making this possible!
