All Smiles


The seventh annual Swim for Smiles youth triathlon was held Sunday at Briar Chapel and raised tens of thousands of dollars for N.C. Children’s Hospital. About 520 children ages 5 to 19 biked, swam and ran for a good cause. The event has grown each year since its inception and raised more than $200,000 total. See all CHM’s photos from the event here.



Chapelboro’s SP Murray came out and got some great photos of both participants and families at the finish line festival this year. See the slideshow of the photos here.
