Runners, walkers, families, and school groups from across the region are gearing up for the 9th Annual Miles for Smiles 5K Walk/Run to be held on Saturday, June 1. Since 2011,  this community-centered event has raised much-needed funds to provide access to dental care for adults with disabilities.

The course is fast, flat, out-and-back. It starts and finishes at Smith Bridge in Plymouth. The professionally timed race starts at 9 am with registration and check-in at 8 am.  All runners are provided with chipped bibs and receive official time results and photos. Online Registration is open now at: milesforsmiles.racewire.com.

Running clubs from local elementary schools will again participate as the culmination of their “Kids Run the Nation” program. “Everyone enjoys the Miles for Smiles 5K – the course and location are perfect! And we are all proud to support Lakes Region Community Services at this local fundraiser,” commented Miles for Smiles volunteer and Plymouth Elementary School teacher and coach, Chris Valenti.
