Sum Ergo Zoom

What we are called to do and what we are called to be ought not be hampered by financial limitations. Thus, the Chalmers Fund of the King's Meadow Study Center has been established to support substantive Christian discipleship and education though endowments, scholarships, and resource development from Franklin to the uttermost parts of the earth.

The Ragnar Relay is a 200-mile, 30-hour, run across Tennessee from Chattanooga to Nashville. Our twelve team members will be running in an effort to raise funds and awareness for the worthy and needy recipients of Chalmers Fund scholarships--particularly at Franklin Classical School and New College Franklin.

Really! 200 miles, 30 hours, 11 friends, in 2 vans, all to raise scholarships for worthy, needy students: surely that warrants your support! Visit our Sum Ergo Zoom project site to donate or help fundraise today!

Ragnar Relay

The 195-mile Ragnar Relay is a 12-person, 24-hour endurance adventure that runs along the Trail of Tears on November 5 and 6--starting in Chattanooga, along the Tennessee River, through, historic Lynchburg, into Franklin, and finally ending at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. Each runner takes three legs while his or her teammates rest, eat, sleep (or try to), and shuttle back and forth between relay stations all through the night.

The Chalmers Foundation, Franklin Classical School, and New College Franklin are currently putting together a team with the aim of not only completing the course but also raising support for a scholarship fund for worthy students with financial needs.

Phedippidations Wisdom

"I stand by the belief that anyone who runs and finishes a marathon, no matter what their time, has demonstrated an ability that marks them as athletically gifted within the human race. This is not to denigrate the importance or accomplishment of running or walking shorter distances such as a 5 or 10K road race; but in a world where only point one of one percent of our species has ever run an organized and official marathon road race to completion: the accomplishment deserves acknowledgement and admiration. But if you’ve qualified to run the Boston Marathon, you are a step above we mere mortals. You have proven that you are worthy of standing at a starting line in a town called Hopkinton to run with runners of similar abilities towards a finish line in downtown Boston marking your name for all time in the official races record book as one who set a BQ, a Boston Qualifying time: and that is an honor you must cherish for all your life."
