Sponsors for the 2014 Event "Miles for SMILES" 5K Walk-Run
SMILES is delighted with the results of the first 5K Fun Run/Walk, “Miles for SMILES”. An autumn event, held at the SMILES facility, showcased the rural atmosphere and the fall colors.
The presence of the therapy herd, attentive and curious at the participants moving through their hayfields, reminded the athletes of the cause that would benefit. The SMILES event offered a unique finish line, at the end of the barn aisle of the horse barn!
A smooth surface adaptive course was also made available for anyone with special needs, or any participants with joggers or strollers.
Runners and walkers alike were greeted at the end of the course with live music by Tim Gresl, as well as warm beverages and a generous ‘prize giving’.
