Houston - TX Contract, Full Time 2 months ago

Who are we?

Apex Leadership Company is an emerging School Fundraising Franchisor that is growing rapidly with 54 franchisees in 33 states. Our goal is to collaborate with school PTO/A’s and faculty to build student leaders through a meaningful, “hassle-free” and financially successful school Fun Run. Franchise owners employ former Pro and college athletes to teach the students about leadership and fitness for 2 weeks and then host a Fun Run. The Fun Runs have averaged 6x the amount netted in traditional school fundraising so schools give communities the necessary resources to support their children.

We combine four important skillsets for students — education, fitness, leadership, and raising money for their school — in our unique school Fun Runs. To date, over 4 million students have been served and more than $120 million netted for 5,000 schools.
