Welcome to Miles For Smiles Ride 2016

Thank you for your continued support.  2016 marks the twenty-third year that members of Hamilton’s Legal Community have come together with their friends, families and community supporters to raise money to provide a long term solution for young people living on the streets of Hamilton. The money raised has allowed us to assist in the complete renovation of the Good Shepherd’s Notre Dame Youth Shelter, providing new beds, floors, furniture, mattresses, linens and lockers. Other facilities for youth such as Brennan House and Angela’s Place have also benefited from our efforts. There are no professional fundraisers involved and the event costs are less than 10% of the monies raised. We have created annual bursaries for teenagers who, in the past, have almost given up on life yet with our support have graduated high school through the Good Shepherd’s supportive programs at Notre Dame House. The bursaries give them the opportunity to cover some costs to attend college or university. This year we are adding a mentoring piece to provide all students bound for post-secondary education with access to a personal volunteer mentor for advice and support during their post-secondary career. We hope that we can continue to count on you this year
