On Saturday, Sep. 7 the Finley 5k Run/Walk proved to be a success. The purpose of this event was to raise awareness for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), which is the leading cause of death in one month to one-year old infants.

This 5k especially hit home for members of the Tiger community. The race was named in memory of Finley, the son of Dwayne Ellison (Assistant Coach of the GC football team). Finley tragically passed away from SIDS at less than a year old.

The 5k had hundreds of supporters with over 900 participants from across the Georgetown community and beyond, including many members of the football team and coaching staff. They released balloons at the event in honor of Finley.
