The race is being organized by the Dormont Recreation Board and will be electronically chip timed and managed by Elite Runners Race Management.
The proceeds from this race will be donated to the Joey Fabus Childhood Cancer Foundation. On May 15, 2014, 8 year old Joey Fabus and his family were propelled into a world in which nobody wants to be a part; the world of cancer. Joey was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DiPG), an inoperable brain tumor located in the most essential part of the brain, the brain stem. The survival rate is zero. On January 21, 2015, surrounded by his loving family, Joey Fabus lost his fight to this horrible disease.
The Joey Fabus Childhood Cancer Foundation was started by his family to bring awareness of this disease and raise funds that will be donated to DiPG research facilities around the world in the hopes that one day they will find a better treatment, and possibly a cure, for this awful disease.
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
7th Annual Miles of Smiles 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk
|Boyce Park Ski Lodge||5K, 1M|
Serving Other Souls (S.O.S.), a non-profit organization comprised of students from Franklin Regional Middle School, presents the 7th Annual "Miles of Smiles" 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk
on Saturday, May 30th with the 5K starting at 9 a.m. and the 1 Mile Fun Walk starting at 9:05 a.m.
Over the last six races, the Miles of Smiles 5K, aka the "Miles of Smiles for Sunny" events have raised over $75,000 for its race namesake, Sunny Carney, and others fighting terminal
or life-altering, degenerate diseases. Sunny's legacy of fighting an incurable disease with grace, dignity, and courage is what made her a living legend in this and other communities.
Over the last six years, the Miles of Smiles 5K net proceed's have benefited families of Sunny Carney, Lorri Nixon, and Kristin Croyle, Bruce Linhart, and Susan Pinal.
To honor the memory of Sunny, Kristin, and Susan, and the fight that Lorri endures, SOS has found an old friend and a non-profit that continue to witness courage in the face of terrible hardships. The net proceeds of the 7th Annual Miles of Smiles 5K will be split (50/50) to benefit the famiy of Lorri Nixon and the Miracle League of Western PA.
Lorri Nixon and her family were recipients of one-third of the net proceeds from the 2012 Miles of Smiles for the Gals 5K. Lorri's family respectfully declined a portion of the net proceeds in 2013 since they felt Plum families has been so good to them during her continuing struggle through leukemia. Lorri was the person who suggested that SOS reach out to the family of Susan Pinal (see above) to determine if the Pinal family would consider a portion of the net proceeds. This is just one of countless example of love for others that Lorri and her family has witnessed to her friends, family, and the Serving Other Souls organization. We are in awe of her courage and SOS believes that Lorri Nixon is a true American hero.
Lorri Nixon is a mom of three who is battling Leukemia. She and her husband Tom reside in Plum Borough with their son and two daughters. Lorri suffered a cerebral aneursym in 1996
and developed hard to control seizures after the surgery. In 2007, Lorri had a mini-stroke and they discovered she had a serious blood disorder called Aplastic Anemia. She then developed Leukemia. She has undergone many blood transfusions, rounds of chemotherapy and clinical trials and they have not been able to get her into remission. Lorri has also endured a great amount of bone pain, physical exhaustion, and long periods of isolation due to a compromised immune system. She was an elementary teacher and reading specialist before she became ill and has tutored many children in our community. Lorri has a strong faith in God and cherishes each day she has with her family.
The Miracle League of Western PA has an amazing website that will answer any questions you have about this non-profit and why SOS has decided to offer 50% of our net race proceeds to this organization. You can view their site at:
You can view more of the stories or pictures of each family that SOS has donated to or is donating towards at our race website:
Our 5K and 1 Mile Walk is more than a sporting event, it is more like a carnival atmosphere. We will have a Chinese auction with tons of themed basket that in past years have included Samsung smart phones and tablets. SOS will be selling donated baked goods at our bake sale that includes coffee from Dunkin Donuts. We look forward to spending time
with you on May 30 to share in the joy of witnessing to each other that we can make a difference in the lives of others if we offer our time, talent, or treasure.
Event Start Location
Boyce Park Ski Lodge (inside Boyce Park) off of Center Road (front entrance) or Peirson Run Road (rear entrance). Day of Race Registration and Day of Race packet pick-up start on
5/30/15 at 7:30 AM until 8:45. Opening ceremonies will be from 8:50 - 8:55, with an 9:00 start that will be prompt. The 1-mile walk will start at same point at 9:05.
Miles of Smiles 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run will start near the Boyce Park Ski Lodge. SOS runs the same course that the Stampede 5K runs in Boyce Park annually each July. We will start within the parking lot loop of the ski lodge, and the first portion of the race is a loop and a half around the parking lot of the lodge. At that point, the race turns into the heart of the park. The race proceeds past the entrance of the park off of Center Road to the turn around point in the race near the back entrance of the park off of Pierson Run Road. Once the turn around is reached, the race really ramps up with multiple down hill stretches that really allow a runner to go for a PR if they wish!
The Miles of Smiles 5K will recognize the top 2 overall male and female runners of the race. In addition, we will award Masters winners for the fastest male and female 40 years or older. SOS will also award first and second place in the following classes for both males and females: 14 & under; 15-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60 & over

I've Got Your Six 6K
The I've Got Your Six 6k and Memorial Mile is open to runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.
Stay tuned to our website and facebook page for the unveiling of our 2015 plans, which will include one more race site (Jonas, PA; the site of VALOR's first Veterans Sanctuary, we will be hosting a race for their 1 year anniversary) among a few other changes that should continue to make our races an enjoyable experience for everyone. The dates to the left will update and registration will go live as soon as each township approves our events!
Once again, we couldn't do it without your support! Thank you so much!
"I've Got Your Six" is a military phrase that means "I've Got Your Back." This race was born out of a desire to remind Veterans of all generations that we on the home front have their backs both while they are serving abroad as well as when they come home. All proceeds of the event will go to support the VALOR Clinic Foundation, a veterans charity started in Pennsylvania focused on helping homeless veterans get back on their feet.

What is a Ruck?
Two members of Team Red White and Blue rucking during a local 5k.
To learn more, check out Ruck to Honor the Fallen.
While the term "ruck march" may be very familiar to our military and veteran runners, we realize that not everyone is familiar. A ruck march is simply moving from point A to point B with weight on your back.
We will be giving out awards to our fastest ruck marchers. To be eligible for the ruck march:
1) Sign up for the 6k.
2) Check in on race morning and identify yourself as a rucker
Our only requirements for the ruck march category will be that you have at least 35lbs in your backpack/rucksack. They will be weighed at check-in. There are no other requirements, so you are able to wear whatever you would like (civilian clothes/running shoes, full military uniform/boots, etc.). When you "pass weight" in the morning, you will be eligible for our ruck awards. Anyone can participate in this one!

There are two parking options: 1) Park at the finish and travel to the start or 2) Park at the start and travel back there after your race is finished.
There is parking available at the trailhead at Walkers Mill, as well as the Collier Township Public Works Lot will be open for additional parking. There will be shuttles from the trailhead to the starting line starting at 7am.
There is also plenty of parking available at Collier Park, simply keep in mind that Nike Site Rd will be closing due to the race at approximately 8:15am. After the race, a shuttle will be available from the trailhead back to the starting line. Or, depending on the weather, it could be a very nice walk! There is also a great dirt trail that leads back up to Collier Park for those that are adventurous!
The course begins at the old C E Kelley Support Facility which is now the location of Collier Park.
From Collier Park, runners will run down Nike Site Road and across the bridge that spans over the Panhandle Trail (Check out the view!). They will turn and proceed back up Nike Site Road and down Gregg Station Rd and finally enter into the Panhandle Trail for the last two miles of the race.
The race ends at the Quarry Pond & Pavilion and will be marked with both mile markers (1m, 2m, 3m) and kilometer markers (1k, 2k, 3k, 4k, 5k). Overall, the race course drops about 700ft and gains approximately 400ft (most of which occurs in the first mile!), making it a net-downhill course.

Written Description of Trail
Starting at Algonquin groove run North, up the hill and cross over Papose drive towards the Gilbert Love shelter. Continue to end of Gilbert Love shelter parking lot and continue north along edge of field and up the hill towards Bayer Road. Trail makes slight right at top of road onto old park road and continue for 200-300 feet before turning left and descending onto fresh un-blazed trail. Trail continues through gully and does multiple switch backs with very slight up and downs. Trail eventually ends up on Greer Road and the start of the Red Trail at approximately 0.3 miles.
Cross over Greer Road and follow Red Blazes down the trail descending into the woods and away from Bayer Road. Red trails descends sharply at first and then levels out and continues through wooded and open sections. There is an old oil derelict approximately 1.3 mile. Continue following the red blazes, continue straight over gas pipeline and then cross under high voltage power lines. At the far end of the power line crossing follow trail making a sharp right into the woods. This is the start of an un-blazed trail that winds through the far south west corner of the park. After making the hard right, trail continues onto another gas pipeline and goes generally down hill, after approximately 0.25 miles the trail then makes a hard switch back left towards the far end of the park. Continue following this trail down a steep incline and cross over the small stream below. Continue following this trail along this lower ridge section. Trail roller coasters up and down crossing small streams and running along the edge of the hill. Eventually Pinkerton road can be seen from the trail and this indicates that the trail will start moving left/east back towards old Greer Road. After initial climb the trail levels out and crosses an ATV trail. Continue straight onto rolling trail that eventually goes down and crosses another stream before coming up to “Old Greer Road” and the aid station location for the course at about 2.8 miles of distance from the Start/Finish line.
Of note, Old Greer Road is an abandoned section of Greer Road that can be followed back up the hill and bring you out to the Park Office. Some sections of asphalt can still be seen on the road, but much of it has returned back into nature.
Continue Straight/East over Old Greer Road onto trail heading uphill. Trail comes to a T at top of hill and turn left to continue climbing up the trail. This section of trail runs parallel to Old Greer Road and is not blazed. Continue following this trail until it comes to a T at the start of the Purple Trail. At this point make a hard right to follow the gently wide nicely groomed purple trail for nearly 0.9 miles. At 0.9 miles the purple trail intersect with the green trail and makes a hard right turn downhill. Continue down the green trail and descend the steep descent towards Baldwin Run. Watch your footing as this section of trail is quite steep and can be slippery when wet. After crossing over Baldwin Run, continue another 0.25 miles through the gully until the course begins its ascent out of the hollow. Follow the green blazes up the hill and note the small waterfall to your left during the ascent. However, the trail passes well above the waterfall and does not go directly over it. Keep your eyes focused on the ascent to your right, with the trail eventually becoming very steep and deeply rutted. Plod on for about 0.25 miles and you will soon be rewarded with the intersection of the blue trail and more nice wide flat runnable trail.
At the top of the green trail make a right on the blue trail and continue approximately 0.75 miles until the trail comes out into an open field and tennis courts. Make a left BEFORE the tennis courts and continue up the hill in the field. This section of trail in not blazed and not part of the blue loop. Towards the top of the hill the trail snakes to the left to continue its ascent towards the parking lots of the Chipewa/Flint grooves. Make a sharp right at the top of the hill and continue past the Mohawk shelter running through an open area along the tree line. Eventually the field comes down to where the blue trail is again intersected by making a right back into the woods. Follow the blue trail another 0.3 miles until it makes a steep decent.

Run for Their Lives
The 7th Annual Walk/Run is our largest and most successful fundraising event, growing every year. This year’s walk will take place on Saturday, September 12, 2015 at Harmar Grove Shelter in North Park. There will be both a 5K (3.1 mile) Run at 8:30 am and a 5K walk at 10:00 am. Along with the race and run, the day will include fun for the entire family. There will be a kid’s zone with face painting, balloon artist, bouncy house, games and much more! We expect around 600 walkers & runners to attend.
The Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Hemophilia Foundation serves 26 counties in Western Pennsylvania. People with bleeding disorders cannot clot, or stop bleeding, normally. They take a special "Clotting Factor" that helps stop bleeding. Having a child with this illness or having it yourself can make you want to invest in bubble wrap. Sports & physical activity can be risky, but are also important to overall health. That's why we are SO proud of our community for choosing to have a Walk/Run as their major fundraiser. It's a brave way to show that a bleeding disorder is something you have, it doesn't have you. Join us in supporting these brave people!
