Smile-A-Mile 5K

Smile-A-Mile Place

The Smile-A-Mile (SAM) 5K is our annual 5K and 1M Fun Run, hosted by the Junior Board of Directors, at Smile-A-Mile Place in downtown Birmingham! This is a family friendly event open to runners, walker and strollers, however, we encourage everyone to run as much as possible to help get streets re-opened in a timely manner.
