Who doesn’t love a good Saturday morning run throughout downtown Birmingham? We sure do! What made it even better? We were able to support a great cause with Smile a Mile and their platform of providing hope for children diagnosed with cancer and their families.
The KC Realty team enjoyed embarking on the 3.2 mile run that consisted of rolling hills, lots of encouraging supporters, and beautiful scenery of a revitalized downtown. The race course started close to Railroad Park and zig zagged through UAB’s ever expanding campus. We were all able to finish and join in on the afterparty that celebrated those who have been on a much tougher journey then the 3.2 miles we just ran.
They had a great turnout of about 800 runners who couldn’t wait to spend their Saturday supporting such a great cause. They even had a very special runner who had participated in the Smile a Mile camp program. Her goal was to finish her first 5k after her first partial leg amputation. She completed the 5k with the biggest smile on her face! You can only imagine the finish line when she crossed it!
We absolutely cannot wait to continue being a part of all of the amazing things that Smile a Mile does. We are hoping to be able to attend their next fundraiser, Red Nose Ball, in 2019.
Thanks again Smile a Mile for a wonderful event and one that we are so glad we were able to support!
