Founded on Thanksgiving Day, 2008 by SCL Provider Orthodontist and member of the SCL Board of Directors Dr. Frank Egan and his wife Christine, the Smiles Turkey Trot is now in its 8th year and raises thousands of dollars to benefit SCL.
Increasingly popular not only among athletes but also among families and general fun-lovers, many participants come dressed in Thanksgiving-themed costumes. Registration for this year’s run reached capacity even before the day of the race.
This annual event features a 5K run and a 1.5-mile walk through Blue Point on Long Island, NY.
SCL provider, Dr. Zack Faber of Faber Orthodontics in Melville, NY, and his entire family took part again in the 2015 race. (see photo)
Many thanks to Dr. Frank Egan and Mrs. Christine Egan as well as the runners, walkers and volunteers for coming out on Thanksgiving Day and making this event a continued success.
