Participants in this year's Miles for Smiles Marathon in Winkler set up at the start line


The 28th annual miles for smiles marathon in Winkler is in the books.

The annual event is a fundraiser for the Boundary Trails Health Centre Winkler Auxiliary.

The funds raised are still being counted from the weekend event.

Auxiliary President Nettie Friesen says they hope to raise $40,000, which will be used to purchase equipment for the Boundary Trails Hospital.
