Jeremy Barnhart is a co-owner and VP of Franchise Development at Apex Fun Run. He has a background in accounting/finance and a variety of other business ventures. Apex Fun Run’s passion is to help teachers (10% of the funds raised go to the teacher), as well as students and schools. The company partners with schools to raise funds for equipment and other campus needs. The concept incorporates a two-week character building and leadership program that culminates with a student “run” to raise donations for schools. Students ask people they know to pledge money for each completed lap, between 26-36. Young and enthusiastic Apex staff members lead the program, and all students get jerseys and prizes for jobs well done. Apex Fun Run raises more money for schools than any other fundraiser, averaging about $23,000.
