For the past five years, the FCA and Abingdon Elementary School have hosted the neighborhood’s 5K race/walk in April. Proceeds benefit the school’s literacy and PE programs, and A Cure for Ellie, named after Ellie McGinn, an Abingdon student with a rare disease. The race brings the community together, with more than 700 participants and many local businesses supporting the event each year. The event has expanded in recent years to include a Silent Auction during the weeks prior. Learn more at http://fairlington5k.com/.
