Fundraising & Work:
Every year The Frye Foundation hosts multiple events, such as: 5K Runs, Walks, Golf Tournaments, and Social Events. While the goal is awareness and Visibility these events are to raise money. The money generated by The Frye Foundation events are used to provide Scholarship and camps to children struggling with Diabetes. Funds are also used to provide education and resources to communities that cannot afford them. The key component to the work & fundraising efforts is that the focus is local. Efforts & Resources stay in our North & South Carolina Communities.
