Annual Finley 5k Comes to Georgetown
Submitted on September 13, 2019
The annual Finley 5k will take place on Saturday, September 14th. The race begins at 6:00 pm on Memorial Drive at Georgetown College.
The Finley Foundation, along with the Finley 5k, was founded in honor of Finley Ellison, who passed away from SIDS at 105 days old. Finley’s parents are Georgetown College Assistant Football Coach Dwayne Ellison and his wife Crissy, who are infinitely dedicated to helping those who have undergone a similar tragedy.
The Finley Foundation’s goal is to raise awareness and research money to one day end the tragedy of SIDS for the next generation of parents. Each year, the event focuses on the effects SIDS has on different families.
1,500 runners pre-registered for the event, which has grown substantially each year since its inception. Registration closes Saturday, September 14th at 10:00 am, and walk-ups are welcome before the race. Learn more about the Finley 5k and make a donation at http://www.finley105.org/.
