Franchisee Connect with Michael G Pullman
Jeremy Barnhart is the cofounder, VP of Franchise Development and CFO at Apex Fun Run. Apex is the only fundraising franchise in the world and their mission is to help teachers as well as students and schools. Partnering with schools, the Apex Fun Run events raise money for equipment and other school needs. Besides the event itself, students can go through a two-week program to develop their character and leadership skills which leads them to a final run where they raise donations.
Apex Fun Run exists to replace or supplement the traditional method of fundraising - bake sales and chocolate box sales. This is a healthier and more effective way of raising funds for your local school! In 3 years Apex has grown from zero to 78 franchises in 21 states.
Jeremy’s background was in accounting and consulting in the mergers & acquisitions space. Tiring of corporate America and the constant work & travel, he realized to be a good Dad he needed to transition to something he loved and that could help him have a positive impact in the world.
