Chris Cashman did a wonderful interview highlighting the work we do and our upcoming Miles for Smiles Virtual 5K.

Miles for Smiles Virtual 5K

Are you ready to Run? Walk? Cycle? Sprint? Dance? Party?

We are happy to announce Birthday Dreams’ first Spring Fundraiser, the Miles for Smiles 5K which will be active from Friday, May 27th through Friday, June 10th.

You can run, walk, or roll at your own pace and in your own way – it’s the steps and movement that matters!

Form a team and start the fundraising. You can even make it a fun competition within your team or between teams. Who can log the most miles? Who can raise the most funds? Who can recruit the most team members? Who can get the most photos for the photo scavenger hunt?

Every child matters. And homeless children are no exception.

Birthday Dreams works tirelessly to make birthday parties happen for the most vulnerable among us. A birthday party is important for a child because it:

  • Marks the day that child was born, validating who they are.
  • Creates a positive memory in a sea of negative, homeless memories.
  • Helps to ease resentments and bitterness.
  • Puts homeless children on similar footing with their peers.
  • Gives the child joy and hope when his/her life seems hopeless.
  • Creates a feeling of togetherness and dignity for the child and his/her family.
  • Shows the child that the community cares and that they are important.
Won’t you join us in bringing a smile to a homeless boy or girl?
