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 The Dana-Farber Team. Their dedicated team is helping us with research to understand how to best support grieving children. Currently, they have partnered with Harvard Medical School to do a literature review with a goal to understand the science.
Unfortunately, we've found the science is years, if not decades, behind in how to help grieving children. We look forward to sharing the results from their research with you later this year, and to using the research to build more resources like our Smile Network, Grief Guides, and Basics of Grief.
