Second Annual Race for Smiles Raises $5,000 

The second annual Race for Smiles, which was held Oct. 6 at Vilas Park in Madison, Wis., raised $5,000 for Give Back a Smile. Roughly 80 participants completed the 5K in Madison, and participated in a silent auction to benefit GBAS afterward. Some participants also chose to donate items for the local Madison domestic violence shelter, Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS).

Runners and walkers in Madison were joined in spirit by 40 others, who chose to participate in the virtual Race for Smiles, allowing them a chance to run or walk a 5K in any location and support GBAS. 

GBAS restores the smiles and lives of domestic violence survivors who have suffered dental injuries as a result of intimate partner abuse.

Thank you to everyone who supported the race by participating or sponsoring!
