The Miles for Smiles 5K symbolizes the hours of walking that patients in Honduras journey to receive basic dental care. Our mission is to raise oral health awareness in our community and to raise funds to provide better dental services to families in underprivileged areas of Honduras. Miles for Smiles works closely with UMD Global Dental Brigades, which is the world's largest student-led global health and sustainable development organization. The organization's volunteers travel to Honduras every winter to set up mobile clinics in rural villages, to assist dental professionals in providing appropriate treatments, and to provide oral hygiene workshops to children. Every dollar raised stretches far and wide in helping Global Dental Brigades provide free healthcare to a vulnerable population.

In 2015, Miles for Smiles entered the Do Good Challenge held at the University of Maryland, a competition among student-run philanthropic organizations to encourage their peers to Do Good for the community. Miles for Smiles won first place and the Audience Choice Award in this challenge, allowing us to make an even bigger contribution to the community in Honduras.
