Miles for Smiles is an initiative of the Student Medical Society of Saskatchewan to raise awareness and funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. Digging back into the history of Miles for Smiles, it was the year 2004 when a small group of medical students organized the very first student-run 5 km race in Saskatoon. It was their brainchild to create an event that promoted healthy lifestyles and involved residents from all corners of Saskatchewan.

Where: Saskatoon

When: In the Fall of each year (End of August or Early September)

Participation: Recently added to Miles for Smiles was a 5km “Fun Walk” option, a 5 km runs and a 10 km run.
