The Run the Ripple 5K is Millhiser Smith Foundation’s signature event. It signifies our encouragement of others to be one of the pebbles that creates a ripple of support and hope to people in the community who need it most.

Each year, proceeds from this run/walk benefit a local family facing financial or other life-changing challenges. We ensure event proceeds go to a significant cause by nominating and selecting eastern Iowa families that need our help the most. Proceeds also go to the Foundation fund to support additional needs in our community.

Meet Paisley Skye Charlier, who is the recipient for our 2017 race.
