Fanthropy Spotlight Charity Partner: TWLOHA

100% of donations through Fanthropy Running Clubs events go to charity, and a percentage of those donations go to specific charity partners throughout the year. These organizations are our biggest fandom: the ones who make positive change, and help us create the sort of better world we want to live in. We’ve seen these better worlds in our books, our films, our shows, our art. These fantastic charity partners make it a reality. Right now, our charity partner is To Write […]

Results of the 2021 Winter DIP

When we set out on this project, we set ourselves an aggressive goal of 5,000 read-to-me books to be distributed to families with the gracious help of The National Diaper Bank Network and their fantastic distribution allies. Every time we calculate these goals, we try to establish a goal that builds upon the efforts demonstrated in past direct impact projects; we try to do something that is a true challenge, but given enough combined grit and goodness, could be done.

In Our Backyard announced as next PHRC charity partner

  Human trafficking is a criminal violation of human rights, involving force, coercion, or fraud to exploit a person into slave labor or sexual exploitation. It can happen to people of all ages and genders, of any race or religious background. Women are often used for sexual exploitation, while men are usually used for forced labor. About 80 percent of all trafficked individuals are female, about 50 percent are children. A common misconception about human trafficking is that it doesn’t […]

Daphne Legacy Tour announced as next WRC charity partner

  Back in 2016, the WRC ran its first event for a cause that perfectly matched our “laugh hard, run fast, be kind” identity: the plight of the Spanish Greyhound, or “Galgo”. Galgos remain among the world’s most abused animals with an estimated 100,000 killed or abandoned in Spain every year. Capable of amazing speed and grace, they’ve been bred as tools for sport and hunting but never given the dignity of proper care, a home, or a family. We’ve […]

World Bicycle Relief announced as next PHRC charity partner

We are people on the move. We run our errands, and we do our work by going here and there. Our kids go off to school, we get ourselves and our family to the doctor as needed, and the cycle goes on and on. It’s easy to take mobility for granted, because so much around our lives is designed — quite literally — to get us and our things around quickly, so we have more time to do more things. […]

The RTI Summer 2021 Direct Impact Project: Period Supplies

  A 2019 study led by St. Louis University researchers found 36 percent of people who menstruate missed days of work due to a lack of adequate period supplies. It also found 21 percent of low-income individuals surveyed couldn’t buy those needed products on a monthly basis…nearly half of them had to choose between buying food or period-related products.  That study was conducted before the global pandemic led to lockdowns, closed businesses, rising unemployment, and decreased availability of retail goods.
