Sosa's Smiles for Miles

A handful of lucky individuals should consider themselves blessed to have been able to cross paths with Alejandro Sosa at one point or another. For his friends, "Sosa" was an instant good-time; his smile lit up a room and his positive energy was easily infectious. He had a gift... he could spontaneously transform any mood into a better one. While many of us are still healing with the loss of Alex, it is absolutely apparent that his energy, generosity and love will live on forever.

On Saturday, September 24th, 2016 there is a St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer. Alex had run in this race and he was very passionate about this cause. We have decided to run this year, in memory of Sosa, and raise money in his name. If you knew Sosa or would like to contribute to this cause there are 2 things you can do:

1) Sign Up for the 5k race in Miami and run with Sosa's Smiles for Miles. A handful of his friends have committed to run and we would love for you to run with us! The race entry is $20, you can run at your own pace, and you receive a medal for completing it.

Join the Team here:


2) Donate to this GoFundMe. All proceeds will be donated to the St. Jude's foundation from a single donation for Sosa's Smiles for Miles - in memory of Alex.

We miss you and love you Alex, and we know that you'll be with us at the finish line!
