3rd Annual 'Miles for Smiles' 5k Raises Over $4500 for Dental Care

PLYMOUTH — September17 was a perfect early fall evening for 150 runners, walkers and volunteers who gathered in downtown Plymouth for the 3rd Annual Miles for Smiles 5K fundraiser hosted by Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS). Proceeds from the race help to fund dental care for adults with developmental disabilities. Dental services for adults with developmental disabilities are not covered by Medicaid leaving many unable to access the care they need for good oral health.

This year's race was dedicated to the memory Allison Tucker, a local resident whose untimely death last month touched many in the community. Allison was a former participant of the Smiles event and was known for always 'meeting everyone with a smile'. The Tucker family and friends together donated over $500 to Miles for Smiles in Ali's memory.

"Miles for Smiles is a fabulous event. It shows just how caring our community is", commented Laurie Vachon, Associate Director of LRCS. We had 15 local businesses step forward to donate gifts for the raffle, 11 individual and business sponsors, including 6 major sponsors, along with many LRCS staff and community volunteers."

Runners included the PSU women's lacrosse team and other participants of all ages. Fran Gonsalves, Director of Special Education for SAU 48 and a former LRCS Board member, designed the race course and led the community volunteers again this year. LRCS staff member Erin Pettengill coordinated the event details and staff volunteers.

Major sponsors many of whom have generously supported the event each year include: Dr. Raymond Thomas Finn Jr. Beautiful Smiles in the Lakes Region; Region III Family Support Council; Delta Dental; NH Dental Society; and NH Endodontics.
