Meet The Team
Team Chapel Arts 2019
Born and raised in Michigan, I married a Lutheran pastor and transplanted to the east coast 10 years ago. I am a trained Director of Christian Education, turned home school mom of two (ages 7 & 5). God blessed me with the gift of running when I was 14 years old and to date I have completed 11 marathons, 6 half marathons and a slew of 5ks & 10ks. Through this sport, God has taught me things about myself and my relationship with Him. I look forward to using this gift to give back to a ministry I am passionate about, Christian education.
Pastor Hartwell has a long love for The Chapel School. His children, Alexander and Hannah, attended the school from Kindergarten through 5th Grade. He is married to Sue who served as a teacher at Chapel School for 10 years. Sue presently serves as a special education teacher and works on-on-one with children at area schools including Chapel. Pastor Rob, as he is known, has served as the Associate Pastor and Chapel School Liaison from 1998-2003 and Senior Pastor/Trustee of the Church and School since 2003. He began running several years ago after a successful fundraising challenge that saw him lose over 100 pounds (as well as raising over $400,000 in matching funds for the Chapel School). Pastor Hartwell is the Founder of Team Chapel and Team Chapel Arts. He ran the Westchester Half-Marathon with Team Chapel 2009, the New York City Marathon for Team Chapel in 2011, The New York Half for Team Chapel Arts in 2015 and the Bear Mountain Half Marathon for Team Chapel Arts in 2016. He is the honorary coach of all Team Chapel runs as the founder of the team and is excited to run with others on behalf of TCS Arts for the second time and his first for the new Half Marathon race route.
