Chick-fil-A's Story

We, at Chick-fil-A Capital Crossing and Falls Village, first heard about Ella Newmiller and her diagnosis in January of 2008. We did four fundraisers which we called "Ellabrations" for The Cure Starts Now benefiting Ella Newmiller over the course of four years. After our fourth Ellabration we decided we wanted to do something even bigger to raise money to find a cure for pediatric brain tumors. We decided to do a 5k and 10k race called Ella's Race in March 2012. Ella danced her way to heaven almost one month before our first Ella's Race. Since Ella's passing we have hosted seven Ella's Races and have raised over $200,000 for The Cure Starts Now and The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. Ella's Race is so dear to our hearts and it is our passion to find a cure for pediatric brain tumors.
