The Full Time You Fund!
Serving organizations who empower
There are many organizations just as excited about empowering others to learn, grow, and be curious about themselves. Full Time You further celebrates that mission with the Full Time You fund! The fund donates to organizations who educate youth in underserved communities in topics like STEM, career development, life improvement, and the arts. 10% of my initial Full Time You run went directly to the fund and I donate additional bonus amounts during the holidays and other key times of year. Because of you, I've been able to donate over $5k to organizations below.
Organizations the fund supports are located nation-wide or in cities I have lived & loved:
