Share Your Smile: Ayers Family
Ben and Tammy Ayers and their three children, Landon, 3, Kendall, 2, and Collins, 3 months, have signed up for the second annual Cleft Smiles 5k. The family was instrumental in the organization of the first Cleft Smiles 5k in 2015.
Ben and Tammy are lifelong Houstonians and advocates for the cleft community. It is daughter Kendall who connects them to Cleft Smiles 5k. She was born with an incomplete cleft palate, and had surgery in December 2014 to repair it.
The family will be out bright and early this Saturday in support of Operation Smile, an international medical charity that provides free surgeries for children and young adults born with cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities. Giving back is important to the Ayers family: “We are really fortunate and just trying to do what we can to help those that may need assistance,” says Ben.
