This group, this community, this family of fanthropists has done some incredible things over the years, no matter the challenges. You might say we’ve “stuck together” through it all.

It’s time once again to see what we can do when we direct our energy towards one goal: bringing a smile to the face of kids who need it the most.

We couldn’t be more pleased to announce that the Winter 2020 DIP will be supporting Noah’s Bandage Project.

The organization was created by an immensely caring boy who wanted his friends also undergoing cancer treatment to have a little joy in their day: a fun, colorful kids’ bandage after a needle poke, rather than yet another boring, brown one. Noah passed away in June of 2015, but not before starting his Bandage Project and making a huge difference around the globe. Noah’s Bandage Project honors his life and legacy by helping to provide cool and fun bandages to kids that need them, and to help support pediatric cancer research.

UPDATE: The results of our 2020 Winter DIP for Noah’s Bandage Project are in…and they’re astonishing!

The collective effort of all the Fanthropy Running Clubs took a ridiculously high target goal of donating one million kids’ bandages…and nailed it by donating 1,033,545 bandages in only 17 days!

The staff at NBP are once again over the moon with the outcome, and moreover with the demonstration of what happens when the global, transcendent power of fandom is harnessed for acts of good and kindness. These are REAL examples of REAL organizations seeing REAL positive impact…as a result of REAL love from our beautiful global community.

You truly are changing the world, one mile at a time. And in this case, you’re improving lives, one box of boo-boo strips at a time!
