“Support. Positivity. Motivation. If that is your style, this is your tribe!” That’s how the Sub 30 Club and Executive Director, Andy Aubin describes this international group of avid runners.
An inspirational group of people looking to be healthy and in-shape was started in April 2012, when Ted Spiker wrote on his blog that he wanted to run a 5k in less than 30 minutes and wanted others to join him. A challenge that he hoped at least 5 other people might join him in has grown into a 4,000+ member international movement where members support one another by sharing their struggles, successes, and running journeys in person, on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (@Sub30Club).
Each year “Subbers” meet at different races across the country to support, motivate, and of course, run together! This October, in Bethlehem Pennsylvania, subbers will come together for the 5th Annual Runner’s World Festival (#RWF2016) where the editors of Runner’s World magazine invite their passionate fan base to come, “Run with us!” With races for runners of all levels, this family friendly event will feature running seminars, live music, dinners with the editors of Runner’s World, and of course lots of great races.
Therese Schweyer, Sub 30 Club Executive Board Member is excited to share that all proceeds from this year’s custom Sub 30 Club #RWF2016 apparel sale with 2 Teachers T-Shirts (That’s us!) will benefit the St. Luke’s University Health Network.

Thank you for helping the kids in your class and school by raising money for them and providing them with an opportunity to have amazing custom designed t-shirts!
We’ve helped thousands of teachers, parents, coaches, and principals raise money and we wanted to share answers to three of our most commonly asked questions that helped those dedicated educators have successful sales and raise lots of money for their schools.
Question #1: How can I motivate students in our school to participate in our fundraiser and get others to participate too?
Answer: Our most successful teachers share why the fundraiser will help their students and their school. They explain to parents and students why they are raising money: to purchase new technology, go on a class trip, buy some school supplies, contribute to a scholarship fund, etc! Sharing why you’re raising money is important because it gives your students, teachers, and parents a strong purpose for buying the t-shirts and actively motivates them to share the campaign with others.
Question #2: How should I share my fundraiser with my students?
Answer: Our most successful teachers take...
We’re having another amazing year at 2 Teachers T-Shirts. We’ve met so many awesome people and many of them were generous enough to share their stories with us.. Read on to check out some of our most inspiring customer stories from 2015.
Last June, Judi Kunkle and her family were all stunned when her 11 year old daughter, Lily, slipped into a coma and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Lily came out of the coma and survived, but she is now forced to face this disease every day. Their campaign proceeds are helping Type 1 Diabetes research, and they’ll be holding future sales this summer and fall!
Last June, Judi Kunkle and her family were all stunned when her 11 year old daughter, Lily, slipped into a coma and was then diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Lily luckily came out of the coma and survived, but is now forced to face this disease everyday.
Wanting to help her daughter, Judi relentlessly researched Type 1 Diabetes and found out that Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes are often mistakenly thought to be the same. While Type 1 is a disease that attacks insulin, a hormone that helps the body digest sugar, Type 2 is a disorder where the body doesn’t use insulin correctly. Judi also discovered that many parents of children with Type 1 didn’t know what was happening when they started showing symptoms. With this being such a common misconception and with so many people not getting the proper facts, Judi knew she needed to spread awareness to save lives.
