Giving Back and Saving Lives

Welcome to SMILEZ RUNS ORLANDO home page.

I’ve always wanted to give back to the town I call home, Orlando, and help make a difference. My mother passed away of cancer 5 years ago. She had colon cancer, but I feel she’s driving me to run the half marathon (13.1 miles) for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. My goal in running this marathon, which is the first marathon I’ve ever run, is to help bring awareness to a disease that claims the same amount of lives as the World Trade Center disaster every 2 ½ weeks. Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children under the age of 20 so I’m doing this for the kids as well as the adults and the families dealing with this disease everyday. I need your help. Please make a donation to support this worthy cause. Remember you have to give to receive so why not start here and help me SAVE LIVES!! I run the marathon on January 6, 2007. Pray for me, lol!!. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. Please also check out Thank you in advance for your support.
