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.

Costs are $20 to $35, depending on category. There also will be a Family Fun Festival, with music, vendor booths, food and a raffle. Raffles tickets ($1 each) will be sold for a three-day vacation to Hilton Head and other prizes.
