It is said that the journey of a million miles begins with the first step – or in this case, the first pedal stroke. Million Miles at Miller Charity Ride began at Miller Motorsports Park in 2011 as an opportunity for the cycling community to share in the fundraising efforts of Larry H. Miller Charities. Last year, more than 450 riders of all ages and skill levels joined forces to help Make-A-Wish Utah. Our ongoing mission is to use cycling as a way to raise funds, caring and awareness for causes in our community.
About Million Miles at Miller
How is the Money Used?
It is our mission to grant the wishes of Utah children with life-threatening medical conditions, and to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. It is our vision that everyone everywhere will have an opportunity at some point to share the power of a wish®. A wish lifts not only the child’s spirits, but the spirits of those who love and care for the child, and the communities that gather to fulfill their wishes.
Formed in 1995, Larry H. Miller Charities is a nonprofit organization that functions as the charitable arm of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies. Assistance from the nonprofit is directed toward groups and programs based in the communities where Miller companies conduct business. Attention generally focuses on issues that affect women and children, with an emphasis on health and education.
This event does a lot of things the Miller family and company stands for; giving back to the community, promoting good health, and partnering with local charities to help them reach their goals.— Jay Francis, president of LHM Charities ”
