THE STORY:

Running Miles for Smiles is organized by the student-organization, Future Dentists Club, at the University of California, Riverside. We are a group of UCR students striving to make a difference within our community. Our club is heavily involved in community events that aid those who are in need of health care. One of the most influential forces on our club has been our involvement in the Student Run Health Clinic located less than 3 miles from campus in Downtown Riverside. This clinic is comprised of dental students from Western University who come together to provide dental care for uninsured individuals. Our time there has opened our eyes to the wide spread disparities that consume our own community. Soon after being exposed to the need within our community, we decided to travel outside our city limits and found that these problems are not only concentrated in Riverside, but in neighboring communities as well. After much contemplation, we decided that we must do something to give back.



Our determination to aid in the fight against health disparities, led us to organize a 5k run which would allow us to bring awareness to the issue and fundraise. All proceeds we gain from the run will be donated to the Student Run Health Clinic, as well as other clinics that serve the same purpose to insure that many more citizens can get the care they need. Please support our cause so we can make dental health disparities a thing of the past!
