Smile-A-Mile (SAM) 5K


The Smile-A-Mile (SAM) 5K helps raise funds to support our mission. The SAM 5K will start and finish at SAM Place in downtown Birmingham with post-race activities and awards. For those who are unable or do not wish to attend in-person, we have a virtual option so you can run, walk wherever you prefer or sleep-in while still supporting Smile-A-Mile!

**Please note changes for 2023 listed under each event option during the registration process.**

Kick Off to Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we’re kicking it off a few days early with our 5K!

Smile-A-Mile is committed to serving families in Alabama who are on the childhood cancer journey by being with them through diagnosis, during treatment and in the years beyond. We provide year-round programs for patients and their families with the motto “We Fight With You”. Smile-A-Mile’s mission is to ensure these families will never fight this disease alone.

All 50 States

No matter what state you’re in, you can register for the SAM 5K & provide hope to families in Alabama on the childhood cancer journey!
