The 2016 Finley 5K Run/Walk for SIDS Research + Awareness

The 4th Annual Finley 5K took place in Georgetown on Saturday, August 27, 2016.  Over 1400 people participated in the run/walk to raise awareness of and to fund research for SIDS--Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.  SIDS has taken the lives of many precious babies including Finley William Ellison in 2013 when he was only three months old.  Finley's family, friends, and community honor and remember Finley in the hopes that other infant lives may be saved.  To find out more about The Finley 5K, The Finley Foundation, and SIDS, I encourage you to visit their Facebook page and their website.

Georgetown, Scott County

The race took place throughout Georgetown College and downtown Georgetown.

We love you, Finley.
