Team Chapel Arts Completes NY Half Marathon

Bronxville, NY- On March 16, 2014, "Team Chapel – Arts" ran the New York Road Runners (NYRR) Half Marathon in New York City to raise awareness for the art and drama programs of The Chapel School. The team consisted of eight Chapel School, Village Lutheran Church, and Concordia College community members, who served as ambassadors of the arts. The Team ambassadors helped raise awareness of The Chapel School Arts Programs. The Team raised $10,000 and is still accepting corporate sponsorships and private grants to support and strengthen the art and drama programs of The Chapel School. “The excitement and sense of accomplishment the runners experience is inspiring” said Kim Zwisdak, The Chapel School Development Office Project Manager. “We are very thankful for their commitment and dedication.”


The Team Coach and Senior Pastor of the Church and School, Rev. Dr. Robert Hartwell, helped form the charity run several years ago. Team Chapel runs in the New York City full marathon to raise money for scholarships and Team Chapel Arts runs in the Half Marathon in support of The Chapel School Art Programs. Speaking about the dedication of the runners, he said, “To commit to a marathon, both physically and mentally, is a testimony to their care for our school and students." According to James Dhyne, Principal of The Chapel School, “Fine Arts, Music, and Drama are important parts of every child's education. While many schools are eliminating programs, The Chapel School in Bronxville, N.Y. is dedicated to preserving and expanding their Arts programs.”
