About Miles for SMILES
Join us Sunday, May 5, 2019, for the Eleventh Annual Miles for SMILES!
By running, walking or donating to Miles for SMILES you will help create, support, and sustain critical mentoring relationships for students throughout Southeastern Massachusetts. The SMILES Mentoring Program helps build future leaders, but our greatest challenge is sustainable funding streams that are necessary to continue quality programming and ensure that EVERY child that needs a mentor has that caring relationship and support in their life.
Racers are also encouraged to create fundraising pages by logging onto www.firstgiving.com/SMILES/MFS2019
By helping fundraise for Miles for SMILES, you will help fulfill the mission of SMILES mentors to educate, inspire and engage leaders of the future.
The Miles for SMILES race is a closed course race that will take place in the Fall River Industrial Park, just outside of 900 Riggenbach Road. Runners and walkers will experience the scenic views of the industrial park while completing this semi-challenging course.
