Races for Faces

Watch our Virtual Kickoff Celebration Event

On Saturday, September 26th, close to 400 individuals came together virtually for our 8th Annual Races for Faces, celebrating differences, promoting acceptance and bringing awareness to the craniofacial community.

We raised more than $220,000 and couldn’t be more excited to be able to put these critical funds to good use!

By participating in myFace Races for Faces, you can help raise awareness for children and adults with craniofacial differences.

The beauty of taking myFace Races for Faces to a virtual platform is that now EVERYONE across the nation can join us as we create and celebrate an environment where we all can feel safe, hopeful and empowered – and come together in solidarity to know we collectively have the capacity to make a difference.
