The world lost a bright light with the death of Meredith Sullivan. For many, she was the spark that ignited both projects and people. Her boundless energy, creative curiosity and genuine interest in helping others made her a natural leader. She could always be counted on to champion a good idea, lift up a friend in need or bring the needed voice of reason to a complex situation. Those lucky enough to know her delighted in her good advice, fantastic taste in shoes and sunny smile that could change the whole direction of your day.

It is that optimistic, community-minded perspective that we hope to honor with the inaugural sMiles for Meredith 5K on July 12. This race serves as the kickoff of a fundraising effort to create an endowed scholarship in Meredith’s name at the University of Delaware for a deserving student pursuing a communication major. The SMILE Fund will be housed at Delaware Community Foundation and serve as a reminder of a vibrant woman who believed in changing the world around her, one smile at a time.

*All proceeds from this race will go to open a fund in Meredith's honor.  At this time any registration or donation will not qualify for a tax donation but will allow us to open the fund.  Thank you in advance.
