Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt Offers a Sweet Treat to Cleft Smiles 5k Participants!
At Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt, the mission is to make every guest smile, and Houston franchise owner Jack Page is now taking that mission world-wide. Menchie’s will be on-site at the 2015 Cleft Smiles 5k providing a complimentary cup of frozen yogurt to each registered participant of the event, all in the name of smiles.
Menchie’s is committed to giving back to each community it serves. At Menchie’s, the main ingredient in their frozen yogurt is a smile, which makes for a fitting partnership with the Cleft Smiles 5K. Their support of the Cleft Smiles 5K helps us support Operation Smile, an organization that provides free cleft lip and palate surgeries to children around the world, giving kids everywhere the chance at a beautiful, healthy smile.
The company is a world leader in ensuring best-in-class products, and considers itself the ambassador of frozen yogurt quality worldwide. Menchie’s ensures that only the highest quality milk and flavors are used to make its frozen yogurt.
There are 15 Menchie’s locations in the Houston area. If you can’t wait until March 7 to get your hands on a delicious cup of frozen yogurt, visit www.menchies.com to find a location near you!
About the Cleft Smiles 5K – The Cleft Smiles 5K, founded in 2014, began in the Woodlands, Texas as a way for the local Houston community to give back to the cleft smile community. The inaugural run will be hosted on March 7th, 2015 at Rob Fleming Park, and all proceeds will benefit Operation Smile. For more, visit www.cleftsmiles5k.com.
About Operation Smile – Did you know that approximately one in every 700 children globally is born with a cleft lip or cleft palate? There is no known cause of this birth defect and babies born with clefts have twice the odds of dying before celebrating their first birthday. Children with cleft conditions who survive frequently have difficulty eating, speaking, hearing or breathing properly. In many parts of the world, children with cleft lips and cleft palates are hidden away, too embarrassed to attend school and face uncertain futures because their parents cannot afford to provide the surgery they need. Every child deserves the ability to smile and a chance to thrive.
Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity, dedicated to raising awareness of this life-threatening issue and providing lasting solutions that allow children to be healed, regardless of financial standing. In as little as 45 minutes, and for only $240, an Operation Smile team can change a child’s smile – and life – forever.
We are a group of families and friends of children who were born with cleft lips and palates. We have joined together to raise awareness for cleft-related birth defects and to support Operation Smile’s mission to mobilize a world of generous hearts to heal children’s smiles and transform lives across the globe.
