This year marks our 7th annual Ella's Race! We have a unique opportunity to host Ella's Race presented by Chick-fil-A Connect Race Series on March 24, 2018 to raise money for The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation and The Cure Starts Now. Our entire Chick-fil- A team is eager to support these two foundations because of a special girl named Ella Newmiller, the daughter of a Raleigh family.  In April 2008, at only five years old, Ella was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and immediately began receiving treatment for her symptoms. When we met Ella she stole our hearts, and since then we have worked to raise money to find a cure for this awful disease.  Ella went to be with Jesus February 2012 as we were in the planning stages of our first race.  For seven years, we have held Ella's Race annually in memory of the sweet, sassy girl who lit up the world with her smile! In our 7 years, we have raised over $130,000 for pediatric brain cancer. Ella's Race 2018 will consist of a 10k, 5k, and a 1-mile Family Fun Run.  All the races will start and end across the street from our Chick-fil-A Falls Village restaurant in the North Ridge subdivision, where we will have a family fun zone, door prizes and food for our participants.   Register at
