My name is Daniel Stanila and I am a grade 12 student at Maple Ridge Christian School. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and being with friends, as well as extracurriculars like basketball. I first learned about children with cleft palate during an assignment at school, and I was intrigued. So, when I first heard about Operation Smile, I saw it as a great opportunity to help the children afflicted with cleft palate. I am now the co-president of the Operation Smile club at my school, along with two of my friends. We are going to do a run to try and raise enough money for ten children to get surgeries.
