Ellsworth. There is still time to register for the Miles for Smiles 5K Run/Walk and 1-Mile Fun Run Walk scheduled for Saturday, May 14, 2016. Miles for Smiles is an annual awareness and fundraising event to support Healthy Acadia's Downeast Oral Health Team projects in Hancock and Washington counties. This year's event will start and finish at Healthy Acadia, 140 State Street, Ellsworth, Maine. Costumes are encouraged: this year's theme is “Show YOUR Dental Spirit!” Dress in costume to impress the Miles for Smiles Tooth Fairy - you might be a tooth, a toothbrush or tube of toothpaste, a dentist, or the tooth fairy herself! Prizes for best costume(s) will be awarded.

Registration/check-in begins at 8 a.m. The 5K walk/run begins at 9 a.m; the 1-mile fun run/walk begins at 9:15 a.m. Registration fee is $25 for the 5K and $15 for the 1-mile walk/run. Students under age 18 pay just $10 for either event.
