Fellowship of Christian Athletes honoring Christophersons

A local couple will be honored in November for their dedication to young athletes and their connections with faith.

The local chapter of Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) will host its Thanksgiving breakfast and honor Ed and Sylvia Christopherson of Alexandria.

The breakfast is set for Wednesday, November 25 from 7 to 8 a.m. at Broadway Ballroom in Alexandria. Free-will donations will be accepted.

The Christophersons, both retired teachers, worked in education for many years and Ed was a football coach at Jefferson High School.

The couple helped establish the local FCA chapter in Alexandria in 1967 and have been dedicated to the organization ever since.

FCA is an international nonprofit Christian sports ministry.
