Well-known South African adventurer, David Grier and his running partner Andrew Stuart, returned in January 2014 from Cuba after running more than 1500km from the south eastern tip of the country to the north western tip in an attempt to raise money for the Cipla Foundation Miles for Smiles initiative. This initiative assists the medical services organisation, Operation Smile, in creating awareness for the plight of children born with cleft lips and palates, as well as raises funds to perform corrective surgery on them. At the time, Grier and Stuart were the first athletes to run the length of this Caribbean island in one attempt.
