Mission Statement

Find Miles for Smiles on Facebook graphic To improve the quality of life for patients with special needs and craniofacial differences through fundraising for education and support.

Who We Are

Miles For Smiles was founded in 1990 as a volunteer fundraising organization. Its founding was motivated by the recognition that children with special needs and craniofacial differences were not having all of their needs met due to medical and dental insurance limitations. Our organization has evolved into a strong parent support group for families of children who are serviced by the Craniofacial Center of WNY at the Oishei Children's Outpatient Center.

What We Do

We are the only affiliation with Oishei Children's Hospital dedicated to providing support to children with craniofacial differences through our fundraising efforts. All proceeds from our events benefit local children here in Western New York.
