This wonderful event offers a kids fun run, a 1.4 mile walk, a 5k event, and a 10k event, and welcomes athletes of all abilities and encourages strollers, and especially special needs “Ambassadors” and “Captains”. (Please visit https://www.smilemass.org/smile-mass-running-team for more information) All races take place at the Curtis Middle School, 22 Pratts Mill Road in Sudbury Mass.

Proceeds from this event benefit the many SMILE Mass programs, including the beach wheelchair project, the equipment loaner project and the fully accessible vacation rental on Cape Cod. Over the past seven summers, SMILE Mass has donated 120 floating beach wheelchairs to public beaches in Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire. In addition to the beach wheelchairs around the state, SMILE Mass has an equipment loaner program. We have floating beach wheelchairs that can be borrowed at no charge, to be used at any beach. We also have two adapted tricycles in the loaner program along with several jogging strollers and a kick sled. We will be increasing this loaner program, and adding additional equipment.

Participants registered by November 1st are guaranteed a tee shirt. There will be awards given across several age groups in both the 5k and the 10k. Registration fees are $10 for the fun run, $20 for the 1.4 mile walk, $30.00 for the 5k and $35.00 for the 10K (plus processing fees).

Special Thanks To Our Sponsors:
“What a wonderful cause and I would be proud to donate! I had a cousin who was two weeks older than I who died of MS in 2002, and we always were inseparable at the beach at Ocean Park when growing up. When she got so bad and was confined to a wheelchair, her family would bring her to a rental in Kinney Shores but there was no way to get her near the beach or ocean. To think of so many children who are missing out on the beach experience is heartbreaking. We’ll donate online and wish you the best!”
Love, Ellen & Steve
