Kimberly Capocasale, Cheryl Edwards and Sharon Kneiss! Thank you for your hard work and dedication to our FACE the Challenge event.

What is a Virtual Race?
A virtual race is a race that can be run or walked from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself using either your fitbit or any other app of your choice.

What: FACE the Challenge is a virtual race to raise awareness for facial palsy and TMJ disorder.  1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers will receive prizes provided by the Center for Facial Recovery, Rockville, Maryland. 

When: The 2nd Annual FACE the Challenge Virtual event will begin on Saturday, September 2, 2017 - Saturday, September 9, 2017.  Local participants can join us on Sunday, September 10, 2017, 9AM at Col. E. Brooke Lee Middle School, 11800 Monticello Ave., Silver Spring, MD. for the conclusion of the FACE the Challenge event! 
You can set your very own personal goal and complete your race any time during the scheduled race time. Participant sponsors are asked to donate a minimum of $1 a mile towards their fundraising goal. You can have your friends, family and co-workers sponsor you as you rack up the miles. Or, you can have your family and friends register and walk with you!  We will provide a log to record your steps and your pledges as well as a very cool T-shirt.  Individual and corporate sponsors will be recognized in the event program, on our website and in the Foundation’s annual report.  

Where: This is a virtual event, which means you can participate from anywhere! You choose the course within the week, and you time yourself!

Why: To raise awareness for Facial Paralysis and TMJ dysfunction . The Foundation’s mission is to advance the treatment of two little-understood conditions that are especially difficult to heal—facial palsy and TMJ disorders—through a three-pronged approach: A) Provide a venue for the exchange of ideas and experiences among healthcare providers regarding these conditions; B) Conduct research on a broad spectrum of facial palsy and TMJ disorder treatments and related subjects; C) Educate providers, patients, and the public about these conditions, their significance, and effective treatment options.
