About the event
Welcome to the Miles for Smiles Challenge! Paul Marks, a wonderful volunteer in the UK, will be running each week in Central London to prepare for the Wimbledon Half Marathon on Oct. 29th.
We want to challenge you to join him - from wherever you are in the world!
Not a seasoned runner? No worries! Go for a walk in the park, a bike ride around your neighborhood, or hit the gym! Physical activity has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health. It can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, making it an essential tool in the journey of grief.
If you're in London and would like to join Paul on his weekly runs, click here to stay updated on where to meet up with him.
This week, we're running for Jonathan Shen, a father who lives in Canada and lost his wife in November 2022.
Jonathan is just one of the many caregivers who are inspiring us to create a program for caregivers specifically. We know that unresolved grief can lead to a lifetime of negative consequences, but healthy relationships with the people closest to a grieving child can help them make sense of a loss, find support, and build the resilience they need to live a lifetime full of smiles.
