13th Annual Miles for Smiles 2016

13thAnnualMilesforSmiles

We invite you to our 13th Annual Miles For Smiles 5K and Festival Saturday, November 5, 2016. Last year you helped raise over $63,000 for medical, educational, therapeutic, and recreational services provided to more than 1,200 of the most medically fragile and technologically dependent infants, children, and young adults with special needs that we serve. Let’s make this year bigger and better!

What Your Support Means
Miles for Smiles provides a once a year opportunity to nurture and protect some of the most medically fragile and technologically dependent children in the nation by funding the highly-specialized medical care that BCC delivers. This care saves lives and improves the health and happiness of those we serve.
