The goal of the 2021 SMILE ON DOWN SYNDROME SMILE MILE is to celebrate National Down Syndrome Awareness Month in October and promote the acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome. We will raise money to support critical programs; our goal is to raise $70,000 to help support the goals of S.M.I.L.E. on Down Syndrome. SMILE serves hundreds of families who have a loved one with Down syndrome, and has expanded to reach the disability community as a whole. The SMILE Center was opened in 2011 at 105 NW 4th St., Evansville, IN and continues to provide vital opportunities for people of all ages from newborns to adults.
To get started, just select the "REGISTER" button to start a team, join a team, or register as an individual.

After you register, you can start your team or personal fundraising page by selecting the "Fundraising Page Set Up" button at the top of the online receipt.
We can't wait to see everyone on Saturday, October 2 at the Vanderburgh County 4-H Center. Please enter through the main gates and you will be directed by our volunteers from The Wanderers for parking and to our new area for the event.
