While running the great wall I was constantly in awe of the beauty surrounding me. The beauty of the planet and its magnificence, but constantly in the back of my mind was the reminder of the paradox, how can this beauty of our planet also be the home of such pain and suffering experienced by our children. Children born with such facial disfigurement that they are ostracized by those around them, struggle to speak, let alone eat. To me the final measurement of the success of my journey could only be measured by the children that I can manage to help to reach their dream of a simple god given right to a smile.
With a simple operation of some 45 minutes a Childs life can be changed forever.
