2017 Miles for SMILES 5K

We are so appreciative of the guests that chose to spend their Saturday morning with us here at SMILES. Our annual Miles for SMILES 5K kicked off with a unity lap. One walking lap through the barn and around the parking lot was enjoyed by all participants.

The presence of the therapy herd, attentive and curious as the participants moved through their hayfields, reminded the athletes of the cause that would benefit from the event. Miles for SMILES offered a fun fall finish line inside the arena with plenty of pumpkins, cornstalks, straw bales and free hot apple cider!
A smooth surface adaptive course was also made available for anyone with special needs, or any participants with joggers or strollers.

Returning this year was the Horse BINGO where participants could buy a square in hopes that the selected horse would deposit within the borders of their grid square.

New this year was the Team Challenge. Teams of 3-5 tackled the obstacle course for the best time! Fun was had by all!

The "Prize Giving" were made possible through generous donations. All paid participants had a chance to win a prize of their choice.

We thank the following sponsors of this event:

Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic
Kikkoman Foods
Stinebrink's Piggly Wiggly
Standard Process
Geneva Lakes Women's Association
