Do you like to win? Then this is the team to join! Without a doubt, this race is ours! We are people who train hard and party harder. But the only thing bigger than our muscles is our heart. We’re here to win, but also to help kids in area hospitals and shelters have just as much fun as we will.


If you’re like me and love your family, you should join my team. I am all about family, fun and fitness!
I will be running with my family (yes including baby Rocco) in the KVJ 5K.
Trust me, we’ve been training for weeks. 


If you happen to love… Big Foot… Weirdness… or pizza…

Little Smiles is a volunteer driven, non-profit 501(c)3 children’s charity. Our mission is to help help heal hearts and create little smiles by providing gifts and fun activities to children impacted by serious illness, homelessness or tragedy. With the guidance of local professionals such as doctors, nurses, child life specialists and social workers, we strive to help kids escape their unfortunate circumstances, even if only for a short period of time.

The daily routine of a child who has been hospitalized typically consists of ongoing medication regimens, needles, various medical treatments and countless hours spent, sometimes alone, in a hospital room. This is why Little Smiles has established an online database that allows the facility professionals to make requests specific to a child’s needs. Through this direct interaction, we are able to respond locally by being hands-on and immediate. Our ultimate goal is to brighten a child’s day and allow them to just be a kid again.

Little Smiles provides anything from toys to electronics, special event tickets and VIP outings. In addition to fulfilling individual wishes, we also organize Snack Food Runs, monthly movie night parties, themed holiday events, and pizza parties complete with Nerf Gun© wars and remote control car races.

In conjunction with our many Corporate Sponsors, we host a variety of signature annual events and “Friendraisers” within local communities that fuel our mission to help children across South Florida, the Greater Philadelphia region, & North Carolina. Learn more about our history and how to get involved today!
