Finley Grace Hollinger was born with Leigh’s Disease, a Mitochondrial disorder. In her short life with us, she taught us three important lessons – Love, Play & Smile. The Finley’s Smile 5K and Smile Mile is the primary fundraiser for the nonprofit organization, Finley’s Smile.
The goal of Finley’s Smile is to provide authentic experiences to children that build background knowledge and aid in future learning, while encouraging families and loved ones to spend time together. In our first year of existence, Finely’s Smile has provided toys and games to families in need, and developed a grant that will be awarded to organizations that share a similar purpose. The Love, Play, Smile Grant will be awarded for the first time this February.
Finley’s Amlin United Methodist Church family will host a short worship service after the race ends at 11:00. All are invited to bring a lawn chair and participate in the service.
