The first annual Finley 5K Run/Walk event will take place on September 7, 2013 at 6:00pm in downtown Georgetown, KY. This Run/Walk is being held to raise money for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Awareness to support a local family who recently lost a child suddenly to SIDS. Finley's parents, Crissy and Dwayne Ellison, are very active in our school system in Scott County and Georgetown College Athletics.
More than 4,500 infants die each year due to SIDS, making it the leading cause of death in infants 1-12 months of age. Many of us have been searching for a way to help the Ellison's cope with this tragedy. Although it is unimaginable the pain that they are enduring, we are trying to turn this tragedy into something they can focus on, and be excited about, in honor of their son Finley.

Cardinal Hustle Against Hunger
Join us for our 2nd Annual 5k Run/Walk to raise funds for the Backpack program at Scott County High School, Ninth Grade School, and Cardinal Academy! The event will take place on September 21, 2013 at 8:00 in downtown Georgetown, Ky.
Many of the students on the Scott County High School, Ninth Grade School, and Cardinal Academy campus have little to eat and often depend on school meals as their main source of nourishment. In efforts to ensure these students have a steady diet outside of school, the schools began a “backpack” food program that allows for a number of students to receive nutritious food donations weekly. Each Friday we provide a backpack to take home stocked with food for each student
