Ella Ferris '20 finished in the top 6% of runners (132 out of 2000) at last Saturday's Eagles Autism Challenge. In order to participate, Ella raised more than $700. In exchange for all of her hard work, Ella got to meet several members of the Philadelphia Eagles including Carson Wentz and Eagles President Don Smolenski. Carson Wentz even signed her jersey!
