Two Capetonians are running 3,500 km along the coast from Namibia to Mozambique to raise money for children with facial disfigurements. Braam Malherbe and David Grier are taking part in the Miles for Smiles 2008 challenge on behalf of Operation Smiles South Africa, which provides reconstructive surgery for children born with a cleft lip and cleft palate. They set off in early July and are running an average of 42 km per day six days a week. If all goes to plan they aim to finish up in Mozambique in October.

In 2006 the pair ran the length of the Great Wall of China also to raise money for Operation Smile.
