The Miles Award

This Award is given every year at the Shadow Buddies Foundation Annual Benefit Dinner, honoring an individual who goes “Above and Beyond” to support the mission of the Shadow Buddies Foundation. The Miles award has a special meaning- MAGNIFICENT -INDIVIDUAL – LENDING – EXTRA – SMILES. Since 1998, we have honored individuals, volunteers and community members who are involved with the Shadow Buddies Foundation.

This Award was created in 1998, in honor of Miles Postlethwait, Co-Founder of the Shadow Buddies Foundation. Miles is the inspiration behind Shadow Buddies and it’s fitting that his thumbprint is the Foundation’s registered trademark. On the left hand of each Shadow Buddy you will find his special mark. Every child who receives a Buddy now owns a part of Miles as well. During many difficult times, he needed a special friend but also had the insight to give other children a friend when they were all alone in the hospital. Our mission is focused on one simple statement: he wanted a friend, “just like me”.
