2020 Winter Direct Impact Project

ย DIRECT IMPACT PROJECT ANNOUNCEMENT!ย  This group, this community, this family of fanthropists has done some incredible things over the years, no matter the challenges.

2020 Summer Virtual Direct Impact Project

โ˜€๏ธย ๏ธThe RTI Summer Virtual DIP 2020ย โ˜€๏ธ Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we had made the decision to cancel our physical Direct Impact Project for Summer 2020. This did not mean we had to cancel the concept of directly impacting local organizations, nor the opportunity to support our past charity partners during this time. We can’t help wanting to do all we can for them, but do it safely! To make that happen, we’re taking the energy, passion, and power of […]

We only gave them three weeks to do so, and then put the Herculean task upon a team of volunteers […]

2018 Winter Direct Impact Project

Over the last three years, the Witches and Wizards of Potterhead Running Club have come together to donate scarves, socks, coffee, animal shelter supplies, humanitarian aid items, and, of course, a whole lotta bandages!

There is no specific charity beneficiary for this Direct Impact Project (DIP) like we had for bandages (Noahโ€™s Bandage Project) or humanitarian aid (Carry the Future). This DIP is all about showing strangers kindness with a simple, but incredibly […]

2018 Summer Direct Impact Project

Noah Wilson was diagnosed with cancer in April of 2014 at the age of six, but never let it change his passion to help others. He always had a huge heart and was constantly looking for ways to help people. His love for others did not change even when he was facing a devastating diagnosis. When his treatment began, he found himself getting pokes almost daily. The hospital where he was being treated did not have ‘cool’ bandages, leaving the […]
