Ironkids 2019

The Smile Foundation helps children in need of surgery for treatable facial anomalies such as cleft lip, cleft palate, nose and ear conditions, facial paralysis, burns and other facial conditions.
Over the last 4 years, 68 children have raised R137 000 for The Smile Foundation by participating in Ironkids. Our goal is to raise R175 000 in 5 years (which means we only need to raise another R38 000 to reach our 5 year target)
If your child is participating in Ironkids, why not join the Smile Foundation Ironkids Team (at no additional cost) and receive the following:

  • Smile Foundation goody bag
  • An opportunity to visit Smile patients in hospital during the Smile Week
  • A great prize for the child raising the most funds (previous prizes include a weekend away for a family of 4, a helicopter flip for a family of 4)
  • An opportunity to create a lifetime of smiles

There is no cost to join the Smile team however you need secure and pay for your child’s Ironkids race entry over and above joining the Smile Team. Secure a race entry for your child here (caution: entries sell out fast).
