durkin-impact-logo2bThe Durkin IMPACT Foundation is a 501(c) that was founded in  2012 on the heels of Hurricane Sandy devastating my home area of the Jersey Shore.

Our Mission The Durkin IMPACT Foundation was established to motivate, educate, and inspire people to improve physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and to help those in need.

Now our IMPACT Foundation is raising money for scholarships to non-privileged, under-served student-athletes going to college who exemplify the qualities, traits, work-ethic, and attitude of an “IMPACT” person. In addition, our funding priorities help those in need that are affected by natural disasters, childhood obesity, and those with diseases such as heart disease, disability, and cancer.


IMPACT Event 2016

This year we are hosting our 5th Annual IMPACT Event at Fitness Quest 10 to raise money for deserving student-athletes that are college bound. 100% of ALL proceeds from this event will go to the Durkin IMPACT Foundation to fund scholarships to deserving graduating student-athletes nationwide.

While the “Day of IMPACT” is relegated primarily for those who live in the San Diego area, there will be a few other ways one can participate & contribute from wherever they live around the country.

Sunday, November 20th
8:30-9:15 am – TD WOW Workout; all levels welcome
9:30-10:15 am – “Creating WOW in Your LIFE on ALL Levels”
Would you like a serious dose of inspiration in your life right now? Do you need a kick start to you motivation as the holidays approach? Todd is going to give a fun WOW presentation to ignite your mind, body, and soul. Be there!

This is a FREE event; however, we will be accepting donations which will go directly to the Durkin IMPACT Foundation.

8:30-11:00am – FQ10 Farmers Market
(FQ10 clients & friends are encouraged to bring one of your favorite treats or dishes to sell at our very own version of a Farmers Market. Each item will be sold for $5 so you can bring as many or as little “portions” as you want for $5 each portion. You do not need to be present, you can drop off/sell goodies)

  • Medical          20%
  • Educational   20%
  • Athletic          20%
  • Environment  10%

Note: From time to time, the Trust may make awards to organizations and institutions that have made no formal request, which we have recognized for exemplary work, and/or show significant promise in one or more of these five areas, and whose continuing work and mission would be more fully enhanced and supported by this funding.
