Finish the Fight 5K, a fundraising event, is brought to you by the Gaye Y Whitaker Memorial Fund. This Memorial Fund is a 501(c)(3) public charity.
All proceeds will benefit this year's honoree, Deedra Gordon. Deedra is a single mom from Christiansburg, VA who was first diagnosed with cervical cancer November 2014. One year later, after having previously been declared cancer-free, she was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer and has been unable to work since that time. Deedra is an inspiration to all that know her. Her faith, strength and courage in the face of this most recent challenge makes her so deserving of this fundraising event.
