Run for the Arts, a fundraising jog-a-thon, is Chapman’s biggest fundraiser dedicated purely to to arts. Every year, funds from Run for the Arts pay for artists in residencies for each grade level, needed supplies, and arts-based assemblies during the year, such as Art Ball. The funds have been used to bring professional performances featuring music and dance, story telling, and drama; to buy musical instruments; and to replace sound equipment in the auditorium. The 4th/5th grade musical this year will be supported by Run for the Arts. Funds raised via this event can only be spent on arts education, and cannot be redirected toward other needs within the school. The funds are managed and dispersed by Young Audiences.
Last year Run for the Arts raised $18,000 for Chapman. We hope for another successful fundraiser and a fun event for the students. Packets have been sent home with students. Please bring the forms back to school on Oct. 4th to record the student’s laps. The fundraising and collection period will extend until the first week of November.
October 4 | 12:30 – 1:30 PM | Main Steps
About 12-15 volunteers are needed to help students count their laps. No need to sign up–meet Mr. Studt at 12:30 PM at the front steps of the school on October 4th.
Thank you for your support! We are really looking forward to an amazing (and possibly less muddy) run this year!
