The idea stemmed from founder Scott Donnell whose wife Amy was an elementary school teacher. He saw how much she spent on supplies for her classroom every fall, and decided to do something about it. Apex Leadership quickly became a top home based franchise business.
Jeremy Barnhart is a co-owner and VP of Franchise Development at Apex Fun Run. 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.
