About the Hot Lips Hustle 5K:
Want to read more about the Hot Lips Hustle? Check out the recent article in the East Cobber: Hot Lips Hustle 5K Helps Raise Funds
Imagine going through life never able to smile. Cleft lip and palate defect occurs in 1 in 700 babies, and many are born into families that cannot afford treatment for cleft. The consequences of untreated cleft include difficulty eating or smiling, and often children with cleft are shunned and abandoned. That's why the Hot Lips Hustle is here to help.
The Hot Lips Hustle race was founded by a 12 year old Marietta girl who was born with cleft and wanted to help children who otherwise can’t afford treatment for this disfiguring birth defect. All proceeds help fund The Smile Train, a non-profit organization that performs life changing surgeries on children worldwide with cleft lip/palate. To find out more information on The Smile Train or cleft, visit www.smiletrain.org.
The Hot Lips Hustle is an annual event. To date the Hot Lips Hustle has raised enough money to fund surgeries for 172 children suffering with cleft lip or palate, changing their lives forever.
How You can help:
In the previous years' races, the Hot Lips Hustle has had over 400 registered runners and so many generous volunteers and sponsors that make the race possible. However, we want the race to continue growing and we need your help! Please come out and run, walk, or support the race. Spreading the word about the race to friends and family is a great help that is greatly appreciated. Also, if you know anyone interested in sponsoring, please have them contact us.
Fun and Prizes:
In addition to the 86 trophies for age group winners, we have trophies for the top 3 overall finishers, Top Finisher Male and Female Masters Division, and top 3 Dog Finisher Trophies. Please talk up the race, the best race t-shirt out ever, the food, the music, the medals given to each dog entry and more importantly, the cause - those children who have cleft palate who will never be the same...thanks to you.
Where and When:
The 8th Annual Hot Lips Hustle will be held September 22, 2012, again at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Marietta.
