Ultra Fun Run of Arizona 

Ultra Fun Run of Arizona


​With over 38 years of fundraising experience we are proud to launch our family business.  The story began back in 1976 when Kim and I married.  We were high school sweethearts from Oscoda, Michigan.  We moved to Olivet to attend college.  Unable to secure a teaching position after graduating from Olivet College we experimented in the fundraising world.  GLN Fundraising in Bellevue Michigan was our first experience.  We started with two item brochures (anyone remember chimers), the invent of packing per student, and 33% was the profit norm.  Boy..have things changed.


​In 2004 we moved to Arizona.  When we left Michigan that afternoon the temp was 73.  When we arrived in Sky Harbor  Airport at 10:30 that night it was 101!    Yikes!  I remember my daughter Andrea stopped and wanted to turn around immediately.  On our first drive home in Arizona we were amazed by a magnificent lightning display.  Arizona has beauty everywhere.  It has quickly become our home.


In 2014 we decided it was time for a change.  We created Ultra Fun Run of Arizona and began offering Fun Runs.  It was rough at first.  We learned many things.  Today, we offer a program that rivals any Fun Run company.  Our groups are raising more and keeping more.


​Over our 38 year career  we have helped schools raise more than $15,000,000 .  Rick, Kim, Andrea, and Ricky invite you to allow us the chance to show you what we are all about.  Large enough to handle all of your needs....small enough to design a program specifically for your school.  We hope to hear from you soon.
