Some people are born with a misplaced overabundance of self-confidence, as the popularity of karaoke bars can attest, but most develop the trait by accomplishing feats they never believed they were capable of. The black-belt-wearing, championship-winning instructors that helm ATA Karate?s 6 locations seek to foster that self-confidence by teaching students the art of self-defense in its many forms, including tae kwon do and Krav Maga. With a client base ranging from toddlers to adults, the ATA staff keeps people empowered and fit by demonstrating effective ways to properly punch, kick, and look cool in slow motion. In addition to teaching martial arts, instructors host leadership programs that show kids how to avoid the perils of peer pressure and adults how to maintain order in their lives. They also cover topics such as dealing with bullies and eliminating child abductions in a series of regular workshops.

Jessica has a design degree, a love for found objects, and a plan to change the world. That's why she founded Trashed, a critically acclaimed studio where visitors create jewelry and decor items from recycled materials. Classes fall into three main categories: Sip & Style sessions are BYOB, meaning you’re welcome to bring your own friend named Bruce; kids gather for eight-session Litterbugs courses; and Friday mornings are reserved for Coffee & Crafts. The studio also can be used for private events and cupcake-fueled birthday parties.

Although the participants in Concord Speedway's Cupid Dash 5K move slower than the racecars that normally loop around the track, there's still fun to be had. Runners receive a T-shirt, some fresh air that probably traveled all the way from space, and the satisfaction of knowing that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
