Our History:

The Finley 5k was established in 2013 after the passing of Finley William Ellison to SIDS.  Proceeds from the race go to the Finley Foundation which is a non profit organization that raises money for research into SIDS, which takes the lives of close to 3000 infants each year.  The 5k to date has sent over $250,000 to researchers at Boston Children's Hospital and Seattle who are actively trying to find a cause and cure to SIDS.
