Smile-A-Mile’s mission is to provide hope, healing of the spirit and love for the whole family during the childhood cancer journey. Through year-round meaningful and educational programming, Smile-A-Mile helps those in Alabama who are affected by childhood cancer thrive during treatment and the years beyond.
Smile-A-Mile (formerly Camp Smile-A-Mile) 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, SAM has grown to include year-round programming at Children's of Alabama and seven camp sessions each summer. We are the only pediatric oncology organization in the state to offer such extensive programming for the entire family. In 2017, we moved to Smile-A-Mile Place in downtown Birmingham just blocks from Children’s of Alabama. SAM Place will allow us to expand our year-round programs and increase the number of families we are able to reach. SAM’s permanent campsite for summer sessions is located at Children’s Harbor on Lake Martin.
Smile-A-Mile is a 501(c)(3) organization.
Pre-raceday packet pick up will be on September 14 & 15 at Smile-A-Mile Place from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Official Chip Timing is offered for an extra $3.00 for 5K Individual and 5K Team participants, and will be recorded by The Right Time. All funds raised from the Monkey C Monkey Run go directly to Smile-A-Mile and by not paying for chip timing for every participant, we can maximize those funds.
