Formula Smiles Foundation

We believe that sports represent a powerful tool to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and thus reduce poverty and inequality that affects our country. We agree with the United Nation’s notion where the practice of sports and play, from early childhood and throughout adolescence is essential for physical, mental, psychological and social development. Participation in sports activities enhances health, improves school performance and sustainable social development.

Formula Smiles Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 2003 by Colombian racecar driver Juan Pablo Montoya and his wife Connie Freydell. Formula Smiles is legally incorporated in the United States under the 501 c3 status. Its goal is to improve the lives of thousands of children burdened by poverty and violence in their daily life, teaching them how they can dream about being better persons and having a more promising future through sports, highlighting commonalities and bridging cultural or ethnic divides.
