Our 2016 Miles4Smiles Bike Ride was held on Saturday, June 18, and was great! We had an incredible turn out of volunteers to help with the ride. I believe we had close to 200 volunteers and 500 riders. You know that you have good people volunteering when they are willing to show up at 5:30 am to help get the event going and we receive comments like this about them:
I can't say enough about how awesome the OBCH is and how organized the ride was. WOW! Support was there during the entire ride. Rest stops were fabulous with yummies and hydration. :) Can't wait to ride it again next year!

This year’s blessing was the incredible weather we had for our riders. The day before we were in a heat advisory and the day of the ride the morning was cool and in the low 70’s. The temperature did not start rising until after the ride was complete. We thank God for this incredible blessing!
We could not do this event without the incredible support of the local sheriffs department, fire department, EMT, and many, many local businesses and individuals.
To all who participated or gave generously of their time or resources, thank you! You have blessed the lives of our children with your encouragement and support. Hope to see you again next year!
