About This Activity

The 9th annual Finley 5k is an annual race to raise awareness and funds for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) research.  The race has grown to over 1500 participants over the past several years.  This year we will have an in person race or the option to do the race virtually. We hope this will accommodate everyone's individual comfort levels with the ongoing COVID pandemic and let anyone in the country participate!

Our History:

The Finley 5k was established in 2013 after the passing of Finley William Ellison to SIDS.  Over the past several years the race has grown to over 1500 participants!  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 $200,000 to researchers at Boston Children's Hospital and Seattle who are actively trying to find a cause and cure to SIDS.
