During the event, Kenyan led the warm-up and stretch activity, followed by a 2.4 mile walk (on a paved loop) with Smile Train’s supporters.

Donations from the event are still coming in, but so far, the event has raised more than $20,000, which is enough to help 80 children receive 100%-free cleft repair surgery. This surgery will drastically improve these children’s lives, including their ability to eat, breathe, and speak over time.
