Wendy Tibus, Founder of Get Movin' Fundraising, was a PTA President for her children’s school and a volunteer for years in the early 2000’s. As PTA President she brought the very first DIY Fun Run to the school and raised $28k in 2 weeks. It was a huge success at the time and prompted her devotion for engaging more into helping schools be successful. It was obvious that healthy donation based fundraisers were superseding any type of sales based fundraisers like junk food or unnecessary products. Parents jumped right on board with helping their child reach a donation goal while promoting physical activity. Through that experience, Wendy learned so much about what she could personally do to help re-shape an industry and provide a new way for people to view school fundraising as positive for the future.
