The Michael Lewis Wolkis Miles of Smiles Foundation has been established to honor the memory of Michael, an amazing son, brother, cousin, nephew, grandson, and friend. The foundation has two main purposes. The first is to provide scholarships to high school seniors who have excelled academically, athletically, and have exhibited exemplary humanitarian characteristics. The other is to raise funds to be donated to other non-profit research organizations to be used for research of brain injuries and other neurological injuries. The foundation also collects new and slightly used sports equipment to donate to less fortunate children, a project Michael once participated in himself.
