The Finley’s Smile 5k and Smile Mile is great for families and those looking to set their next PR! The event takes place at Liberty Park in Powell, on a soft gravel path and consists of a 5k and 1 mile(ish) walk/run.

Finley Grace Hollinger was born with Leigh’s Disease, a mitochondrial disorder. In her short life with us, she taught us three important lessons which we summarize as “Love, Play, & Smile.” The Finley’s Smile 5k and Smile Mile is the primary fundraiser for the nonprofit organization, Finley’s Smile. The goal of Finley’s Smile is to provide authentic experiences to children that build background knowledge and encourage families and loved ones to spend time together.

Since 2016, the Finley’s Smile organization provided funding to projects that included an open gym space for young children and their families at the Delaware YMCA, a family night hike program at the Ohio Wildlife Center, multiple scholarships for children to attend horse camp at Marmon Valley Farm, support of Legacy Community Park in Newark, improvements in the family-friendly Gators’ Mountain Bike Park, Together We Grow Gardens community gardening program in Newark, and more. The newest project for Finley’s Smile this past year has been the development of a Games In Schools program. Finley’s Smile develops and provides ongoing management support of game collections for school libraries. These high quality games can be checked out by children at their school to take home and enjoy with their families while spending time together, improving literacy skills, and navigating new challenges. Come join us for this fun-filled family friendly event!
