[Overall Results] [Results by Class]


Finley Pletcher is the 6 year old daughter of Jennifer and Mathew Pletcher and the granddaughter of Ted and Phyllis Kovall and Ben and Sally Pletcher. Finley has been diagnosed with a rare eye condition called Lebers Congenital Amaurosis RDH12. This condition will cause her to go completely blind by the time she is a teenager. Currently there is no cure. Her family raises money for research that is being conducted to find a cure and keep her from going blind. All proceeds fro this event will be for research to find a cure for Finley's RDH12. Please join us and help us reach our goal of $20,000 at this race so that our quest for a cure can continue.
