The 2nd Annual Smiles Change Lives Turkey Trot 

Results 2009 Smiles Change Lives Turkey Trot  

The second annual Smiles Change Lives Turkey Trot was a huge success with over 1000 participants from 19 states and Washington D.C. The day featured a 5K run, a 1.5 mile walk and a kid’s fun run.

"The community has embraced this tradition and we are glad to be a part of it," said race director Christine Egan. "Enough money was raised to help over 70 low-income Long Island kids receive the orthodontic treatment they desperately need," added Dr. Egan. Long Island’s is one of nearly 20 Smiles Change Lives programs across the country. Programs help economically disadvantaged kids get the orthodontic treatment they desperately need.

 The 2009 race was an even greater success than last year's race! Thank you to everyone who took part;  the participants, the invaluable volunteers and our generous sponsors and friends.
