500 miles for smiles

Operation Smile UAE

Story

For Operation Smile UAE's 10th Anniversary, our Director, Morag is raising funds by challenging herself to complete the North Coast 500 Virtual Challenge. Her goal is to raise 20,000 AED and complete the virtual journey around the North Coast of Scotland (her home country) - a 500 mile (806 km) trip- by the end of 2021.  

Morag will walk, run, cycle and dance her way around the route. 

All proceeds will go towards providing free, safe surgery to children with cleft conditions. 

Stay tuned for updates!

#Update

Cycling in the warm evening last night and again on the indoor bike this morning. Didn't get to see the glorious flowers in the postcard but I am happy to have the extra time to get in the miles. Happy Eid Everyone!!!


#Update

I didn't have to go up such a steep climb in Abu Dhabi this morning but my legs still felt a little wobbly at the end of my walk. Thinking of al the children having to walk over hills to get to a mission.



#Update


Cycled and walked for over 100 miles! And now having a rest and rejuvenating day!!

Patients and families don't always get that luxury, they have to get to the mission site if they are to have a chance of surgery so I will be back walking and cycling tomorrow to get a sense of feeling what it is like for them.

Update # 4 - July 15th 

Lots of hills in Scotland just like in some of the countries where our patients live. It is hard walking but all worth it.






#Update

Still walking and cycling in the heat but also done some cycling on the stationary bike inside. Had a break for a day while I had meetings in Dubai but i've got to keep going because so many children are waiting for surgeries. Give me a wave if you see me along the way!
