The fourth annual Miles-4-Smiles Race/Walk benefitting the Amanda Riley Foundation is scheduled at 8 a.m. June 7 at Tribble Mill Park in Gwinnett County.

The Foundation is a non-profit charity that supports children battling cancer. It is named for Amanda Riley, a Snellville teen who had dreams of teaching the third grade at Brookwood Elementary, but died at the age of 17 of a rare form of cancer.
