  • Run For Good 5K
    The family-friendly Run For Good 5K, which weaves through the streets of downtown Anchorage, challenges runners, walkers, and wheelchair athletes of all ages with a scenic, closed-loop course. Alongside a fleet of pavement paladins, racers will start at the Town Square Grill and dash across smooth surfaces while absorbing picturesque vistas and encouragement whispered by amiable breezes. Cardiovascular cavalries can burst through welcoming finish lines, where awards for the quickest male and female participants per age division are doled out. A spirited post-race rally offers sprinters the chance to refuel empty tanks with a variety of refreshments and occupy senses with a panoply of live bands and vendors. The race will occur in all types of weather conditions, including rain, shine, or grasshopper invasions.

  • Focus, Inc.
    Faith Kelly believes that “there is an artist waiting to get out in everyone,” so she founded Focus: Art to give people the tools to find that latent artist. Like its parent organization, Focus, Inc., Focus: Art's goal is to serve people with developmental disabilities. But it also exposes adults to the arts in an environment where everyone can get along, even though they may “think differently or perceive the world differently.” Focus: Art currently runs four art classes a week. During the first half of each 2.5-hour session, budding artists work on art projects in a variety of media, including painting, printmaking, and sewing. Then, after a tea break, they pull out guitars, homemade maracas, and drums to make music together. These art projects and jam sessions both inspire community and demonstrate new, creative ways to connect with the world. To celebrate Earth Day, for example, Focus: Art students designed and constructed an applique quilt. During a month of classes, artists designed their squares on paper and recreated them in fabric. Each square contains landscape art such as shining suns and leafy trees. Recently, they have worked with mixed media, gathering trash, twigs, pebbles, and buttons to build textural collages on canvas. Over time, the artists’ work begs to be shown—and purchased—so Focus: Art hosts art shows four times a year to showcase their painting, photography, and sewing projects.
