The Annual Miles for Smiles runathon event, a partnership between the University of Texas at Dallas Pre-Dental Association and Texas A&M University College of Dentistry, benefits the dental school’s Social Services Fund. The fund coordinates subsidized care for qualifying patients.

The event also features live music and entertainment, as well as prizes, giveaways and refreshments for participants.

An entry fee is required for runners. Those who cannot be present but would like to support the event may either make a one-time donation or pledge a specific dollar amount per mile run.
