Meet The Team
Team Chapel Arts 2014
Marc Elliott has been a Chapel parent since 2010. He and his wife Cathleen are avid supporters of the arts and the proud parents of 3rd grader Claire and 1st grader Cole, both of whom benefit from the Chapel school's art, theater and music programs. Cathleen is a volunteer in Chapel's art program and started the Chapel School Art Club this school year. Marc has run for health and enjoyment for many years but the NYC 1/2 will be his first official half marathon and he is excited to make a showing for Team Chapel Arts.
Treva Foss is an instructor of music at Concordia College. As a teacher and performer, she works to encourage participation and support of the arts. Treva is an avid marathoner, having completed 14 marathons in the last four years and is a member of Marathon Maniacs. Treva is looking forward to joining Team Chapel -Arts for a worthy cause!
Chris Gleason is the proud parent of two current Chapel School students. He and his wife, Sarah, have both served on the Board of Trustees and have been members of the VLC since moving to Westchester in 2002. Supporting the arts is near and dear to the Gleason family. Sarah is a middle school choir director, and Chris's first career was that of an actor. It now thrills them both to watch their sons participate in the excellent music, art, and theatre programs of The Chapel School. Chris is excited (and a little anxious) to run his very first half-marathon and honored to do so for Team Chapel-Arts.
George Heath has been with Village Lutheran Church and The Chapel School for twelve years. He serves as the cantor for the church, and music teacher for grades 3-8 for The Chapel School. He is also the parent of two Chapel School students. Running has become one of his favorite hobbies and is very pleased to be able to support such a worthy cause.
Anderson Kenny has been a Chapel School parent since 2011. He and his wife, Chandler, have two children attending The Chapel School: Harper (2nd Grade) and Lanford (1st Grade). Anderson ran several half marathons and a full marathon in the early 2000's. One of Anderson's personal goals has been to participate in the New York half marathon. Anderson is an architect and painter working in Manhattan.
Heidi von Maur
Heidi von Maur has been a Chapel School parent since 2006. She and her husband, Jack, are the proud parents of 7th grader, JV, and 4th grader, Gus. An avid runner, Heidi has run multiple half marathons and has completed several endurance obstacle races such as Tough Mudders and Spartan Races. She encourages her children to accompany her on running races and enjoys running alongside with them. Heidi's background is in the fine and decorative arts, so she is particularly happy to be part of Team Chapel – Arts.
Former chapel parent Steve Podoll has been attending VLC since before Jennifer & he were married there 14 years ago. Never a distance runner, Steve stumbled on running in a weight loss challenge November of 2012 which led to his first half marathon five months later. The arts are very close to his heart; working in graphics, singing part time and with a wife & kids who are also involved in and enjoy music & arts in many ways. He's really looking forward to his second half marathon, the NYC half with Team Chapel Arts!
