  • Race Roll Dye
    Participants at Race Roll Dye start off wearing a clean white t-shirt but come out the other end looking like a bag of Skittles. That's because the organizers fill their obstacle courses with dye stations that splash runners in a galaxy of colors. The obstacles are both inflatable and traditional obstacles like vertical walls, low crawls and tire runs. The dyes are safe and easy to wash out, but they make a great picture at the end of the run, where participants get to join a post-run party with a DJ.

  • Jeremy's Run
    In 2008, at the age of 20, former athlete Jeremy Glass lost his battle against heroin addiction. To raise awareness and help others overcome their addictions, Jeremy's parents started an annual event: Jeremy's Run. By their estimation, the annual USATF-sanctioned walk and run has raised more than $110,000 and counting for drug-prevention programs. Participants choose from three runs?1 mile, 5K, or 10K?that take them on a leisurely path through verdant residential areas. Each runner also receives a virtual goodie bag that, in addition to helping reduce paper waste, allows them to pick and choose which items they'd like in advance. Race proceeds go to support three programs: The Partnership at Drugfree.org, the Jeremy Glass Memorial Scholarship Fund at the Kolmac Foundation, and "Jeremy's Hour?Knowledge Can Save a Life," an addiction outreach program through MedStar Montgomery.

  • Chester County Historical Society
    Since its founding in 1893, the Chester County Historical Society has painstakingly cataloged nearly every facet of local life?from government records to fashionable dresses of the day. It's no wonder, then, that its 300-year-old collection of artifacts, photographs, and reference volumes takes up an entire 56,000-square-foot downtown History Center. Inside, visitors can find rotating exhibits on topics such as Civil War history and historic paper and textile crafts. Additionally, the permanent galleries are home to handcrafted grandfather clocks and furniture and fashion from the early 1700s to the 20th century. When museum staff aren't organizing the collections or leading educational workshops, they can help unearth a person's family history in the library and photo archives, which feature more than 80,000 historical and modern prints.
