Carroll Middle School FCA Participates in Chick-fil-A Race Series

On September 12, members of Carroll Middle School’s (CMS) Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) hit the pavement for fellowship, fun and some early-morning exercise. The group participated in the Chick-fil-A Connect Race Series of Keller, which included a 5K race and 1-mile fun run benefitting FCA, a non-denominational Christian sports ministry.

Zach Sellers, coach and outdoor education teacher, founded the CMS chapter of FCA in 2013. He coordinated the event, which drew 20 CMS students, former students and parents, and raised nearly $900 for FCA.

“It’s a privilege to be able to teach and lead by focusing on FCA’s four core values: integrity, serving, teamwork and excellence,” says Sellers. “The Chick-fil-A Race Series was a great way to get the group together and have a positive impact on the community. I encourage everyone – not just athletes – to check out FCA.”

The family-friendly event drew a total of 198 runners who logged more than 600 miles and more than 100 hours running. Click here for more information and to view race results.
