The SMILE Mass Beach House is a fully handicapped accessible space, that is aesthetically pleasing. It offers families equal opportunity, with minimum barriers. Everyone deserves to relax, have fun with friends and family, play outside and soak up the sun despite disability.
That is what our home offers!
SMILE Mass has several pieces of equipment for families to borrow and take anywhere with them. Our current inventory includes: floating beach wheelchairs, Rifton bath chair, basic white bath chair with back, high performance Hoyt running chair, blue Freedom running stroller, adapted bike (delivery not available, pick up only), hoyer lift (provide your own sling) and a portable ramp.
Help us raise ~$500,000 to fund state-of-the-art Universal Design compliant playground equipment, rubberized surfacing and other key items to create a universally accessible playground in Hudson, MA. This will provide a safe place for children and adults of all abilities to come together to play, learn, and grow.
SMILE Mass renovated the Haskell Field Playground in Sudbury to become the 1st fully accessible playground in Metrowest. We are currently working with Play Sudbury to update the playgrounds at all four of the Sudbury elementary schools. For more information on the school playgrounds, please visit http://www.playsudbury.com/

The Ragnar Relay is a 200-mile relay race from Hull, MA to Cape Cod – running up to Wellfleet and then back to South Yarmouth. Each team consists of 12 people who each run 3 legs over approximately 30 hours.
SMILE Mass will have several teams participating in the Ragnar Relay Cape Cod on May 8 – 9th. Would you like to run with us?
We have a few spots left on two of our teams. If you would like to run with us, there is a $1300 fundraising commitment. In exchange, SMILE Mass will provide bib numbers, vans, 3 t-shirts plus 1 long sleeve shirt, hotels at the half-way point and all the safety gear needed.

SMILE Mass has a team of runners participating in the Falmouth Road Race on August 16, 2019.
The race is seven miles long and begins in front of the Woods Hole Community Center, near the drawbridge on Water Street. The first three miles are narrow, hilly, winding tree-shaded roads, while the last four miles are open on the flat right next to Martha’s Vineyard Sound. A small steep hill lets you know that you are beginning the last half-mile of the race. Once you crest the hill it is all downhill to the finish.
New this year we will have an extra ordinary after party for all our SMILE Mass runners and their cheerleaders (friends and family) right at the finish line!
If you have run Falmouth before you know how big of a deal this is.
Soprano’s Casino by the Sea will be hosting us!
The fundraising commitment is $1000. SMILE Mass will provide your bib number and a running shirt. If you would like a hotel the night before, the fundraising commitment is $1500.
To get to the restaurant, simply cross the finish line and hug to the right – the restaurant will be right there. More details will follow. All SMILE Mass runners will be VIP guests of Soprano’s Casino by the Sea. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be served for all SMILE Mass runners and their guests.
To run Falmouth on behalf of SMILE Mass you are committing to raise $1000. If you would like a hotel room the night before, the fundraising commitment is $1500.
We still have a couple of bib numbers. Deadline to register is February 27, 2020. If you would like to run for SMILE Mass, email email@example.com or call 617-967-9955.
