I am a researcher studying early development and altered development such as cleft lip and palate, a common birth defect. I am running the Great North Run 2022 to raise awareness about cleft and the charity that is making a difference to cleft care.

I chose CLEFT due to their excellent work in supporting research into this condition and training surgeons globally to perform important surgery. The surgery is relatively low cost and makes a huge difference in transforming children's lives. Muzlifah Haniffa
