Pack…to the Future!
Who wants to help break a Guinness World Record? Well, that’s what we are about to do!
Education is the key to the future, but many families cannot afford to give their kids the supplies needed to be successful in school. One incredible organization based in Minneapolis (founded by an EIGHT year-old philanthropist!) has been supporting children in numerous ways for a decade.
They’ve been so successful, their “High Five for Supplies” program set a Guinness World Record last year by stuffing 8,148 backpacks for school children in just 8 hours.
Anyone want to see what happens when a crowd of Fanthropists gets involved?
Yes. Yes, we do.
We will be collecting #2 pencils (12-count boxes), colored pencils (12-count boxes), glue sticks, and highlighters…and our goal is to provide over 18,000 of the many school supplies that will be going in thousands of backpacks during a World Record effort on July 27th at the Mall of America!
All four Fanthropy Running Clubs will be participating in this event, so if you’re part of the Potterhead Running Club, Whovian Running Club, Chilton Running Club, or Fandom Running Club, it’s time to make a direct impact in the lives of thousands of children, and give them the tools they need to get the best education possible!
