Camp Smile-A-Mile’s Mission:
Camp Smile-A-Mile’s mission is to provide year round challenging,unforgettable recreational and educational experiences for young cancer patients, their families as well as young adult survivors from Alabama at no cost to the families. Our purpose is to provide these patients, families and survivors with avenues for fellowship, to help them cope with their disease, and to prepare them for life after cancer.

About Camp Smile-A-Mile:
Camp Smile-A-Mile (Camp SAM) was established in 1985 to serve the children of Alabama battling cancer while also being a source of support for their families. Starting with a single, week-long camp that welcomed patients of all ages, Camp SAM has grown to include year-round programming and seven camp sessions each summer. We are the only pediatric oncology camp in the state to offer such extensive programming for the entire family. In addition, we have developed a scholarship program for campers attending universities and vocational schools. Camp SAM’s office is located in Birmingham and neighbors Children’s of Alabama. Camp SAM’s permanent campsite for summer sessions is located at Children’s Harbor on Lake Martin. Children’s Harbor donates the use of their facility. Since its inception 30 years ago, Camp SAM has steadily expanded its reach, now welcoming more than 450 campers from throughout the state each summer. Hundreds more children and their families participate in our other year-round programming. Camp is free-of-charge to the families and transportation is provided from Children’s of Alabama to the campsite. Camp Smile-A-Mile is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Race Day Countdown:

Race Information:

Fort Payne, AL – Jacksonville State University and the Little River Canyon Center is pleased to announce its 5th annual half marathon set to be held on Saturday, October 8, 2016.

Possibly one of the most scenic half marathons in the country, the certified course loops 13.1 miles on paved roads, starting and ending at the Little River Canyon Center.

To start at 8:00 am, the first five miles of the run will follow the Little River Canyon National Preserve’s incredibly scenic and sometimes challenging rim of the canyon, as the remainder winds through gently rolling farm country including Randy Owen Drive and his famous Tennessee River Music Hereford and Angus cattle ranch. Randy and Kelly Owen are often on hand at the 6 and 8 mile water station pitching Fig Newtons, energy GU and drinks but this year they’ll add a necessity. According to Kelly “Yes runners, we’ll have a port-a-potty”.

The half marathon will feature five water stations, music, ample law enforcement, shirts, trophies, finishing metals, and much more. Proceeds go to outdoor education programs and local conservation efforts at Little River Canyon.
