Date:4/27/2009

Every Child Deserves The Opportunity To Smile.

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the most important things in every child's life is the opportunity to smile. BrittiCares International, a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization, is doing just that. BrittiCares (BCI) will hold its 4th annual "Smile For Life" 5k run/walk, May 30, 2009, at Pacific Palisades High School. Hosted by Chris Tucker, the race will include a finish line, cash prizes and a Lakers Girl warm-up. BCI encourages all to come out to participate with family, friends and co-workers, and build teams to help save the lives of children stricken with childhood illnesses.

BrittiCares most recent "Butterfly" Jersey, speaks of a day free of cancer, "Being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 12 was an unbelievable challenge for me." Jersey continues, "a year later, I don't think I fully understand it all and many of my questions have yet to be answered, as to why me. I don't have the answers, but I do know that BrittiCares helped put a smile on my face. When I came home from a long hospital stay and saw my new bedroom makeover, for a while, I forgot to be sad and felt really happy that this had been done for me. I enjoy it every day, as it provides an escape for me to just relax and dream of a day free of cancer." Making dreaming possible is just as important as one day living the dream; BCI makes dreaming possible and saves lives.

BrittiCares "Give Life For Christmas" Blood Drive in 2008, set new records at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. The hospital collected 180 units of whole blood that day. The hospital's goal for receiving blood during a single day is 35 units, and during the holidays that goal is harder to achieve. The blood drive have help save as many as 500 lives. Join the race to help save many more.
