University Hosts Miles For Smiles

Posted: Updated:

A smile can say a lot about a person. And, as part of Minot State University's Power of 100, the Department of Communication Disorders took on the challenge of adopting Smile 100.

Since October, students, faculty and staff have been raising money for 100 cleft lip and palate surgeries for children in under-developed countries. That's a $24,000 goal.

Often times, children will have a scar on their face or a hole in their mouth, which can cause speech problems.

"If we can help with these sorts of situations and remediate so that children can have a better life. It's amazing, and that's what we're doing, changing lives," says Lesley Magnus, Minot State University Communication Disorders associate professor.

As of Thursday, 115 surgeries have been paid for.

Minot State University will host its third annual Miles for Smiles walkathon, May 3 on campus.  All funds raised will go towards more surgeries. To register you can call 858-3031.
