150: Apex Fun Run with Jeremy Barnhart

By Steven Miletto

Teaching Learning Leading K12 provides resources for classroom teachers and school-based administrators.

Apex Fun Run offers the opportunity to fund raise for schools without depending upon traditional “product-based” programs.
I don’t know about you but as a kid I sold my share of Turtles (the candy not the critter), candy bars like Snickers and Milky Way as well as M&Ms. On top of those items I also sold wrapping paper, Christmas trees, candles, and popcorn. Who knows what else. As a parent, I have experienced these same types of opportunities for my kids to become traveling candy salesmen. 

On today’s show, I am talking with Jeremy Barnhart, the Co-Owner, VP for Franchise Development, and CFO of Apex Fun Run. This company partners with schools to raise money for equipment and other campus needs.
This unique method for raising funds incorporates leadership, character building, and encourages physical fitness. 
Another unique aspect of Apex Fun Run is that it offers the opportunity for you to own your own business.
Jeremy talks about how “they changed the game of fund raising for schools.”
He notes that something that makes them so different from product-based fund raising is that in traditional programs “the schools keep somewhere between 20% – 30% of the collected money whereas with Apex Fun Run the schools retain from 52% to 77% of the money.”
