A London dental charity worker is set to walk 100km for children with cleft palates and other palatal conditions. Chris Williams, who works for Operation Smile UK, hopes that his efforts will help many people in the poorest communities around the world.
The event is due to take place over the May Bank Holiday and Chris aims to raise around two thousand pounds. Many people from the UK will be taking part. It is hoped that lots more money will be raised for various charities. Runners and walkers will set off from the Capital City and stretch over a hundred kilometers, finishing up in Brighton.
In terms of Chris’s aspirations, his charity walk could help over one hundred and fifty adults and children from over eighty countries access the surgery they need. Chris was also born with this condition himself and this spurs him on to help others in the same position. Because of this, he has been involved in previous charity events to raise money and provide education.
