Fifth Annual Veronica’s Journey 5K

Last updated on December 20, 2023

In loving memory… 

The Fifth Annual Veronica’s Journey 5K took place at the Shavano Park Pavillion on September 24 to benefit the Veronica Nicole Finnie Endowment at Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of San Antonio, which supports Veronica’s Boutique at the Guadalupe Community Center. 

Proceeds will also support Gabriella’s Smile Foundation – a local children’s cancer support center. 

At 13 months old, Veronica Nicole Finnie was diagnosed with Ependymoma, or brain cancer. Though she valiantly fought the tumor for 11 months, she would not survive the barrle and went to be with the Lord on Aug. 24, 2017. The 5K is in her moment and all children who battle cancer. 

The Veronica Finnie Endowment for Women and Children was established by her parents – Dr. Mitch and Chrissy Finnie – as a living fund to help secure resources for those in most need.
