What began as three educators hoping to make a difference in the lives of children in a North Carolina county has turned into a national resource for Pre-K through adult education.

The week-long camps run year long and use hands-on activities to get kids excited about learning.
A classic Italian game steeped in tradition, Bocci conjures memorable times with family and friends–and that's exactly what Bocci Trattoria & Pizzeria aspires to do, as well.

It dishes out authentic Italian favorites, such as fresh pastas and handcrafted pizzas, and offers visitors multiple areas in which to dine, including a stylish bar area and outdoor patio.
Crowds of people decked out in leg warmers and bandanas, sporting popped collars on their Members Only jackets and rocking Wayfarer shades. It sounds more like a Duran Duran video shoot than a fun-run, and that's the gist of the 80's Retro Run. Set to a soundtrack of the decade's best tunes, the throwback 5K celebrates the years that gave the world MTV and landfills full of unsolved Rubik's Cubes. Contestants are encouraged to dress up like their favorite '80s icon as they run, walk, or moonwalk their way to the finish line. After they've completed the course, revelers can shake it up at the after-party, where cover bands and DJs kick out nostalgic jams. Proceeds from the Retro Run benefit local charities, and all contestants receive their own headband, an event T-shirt, and an excuse to show off their collection of antique slap bracelets.
Electric Foam 5K isn't measured by time, but by bubbles and beats per minute. Foam cannons and speakers line the roughly three-mile course, keeping pulse rates high with booming EDM anthems. By night, murals of lights and tree installations help guide participants of all ages as they run, walk, dance, or let their moms push their strollers to the finish line. Everyone is free to go at their own pace, and encouraged to dress in their most flamboyant costumes. At the finish line, they won't be greeted with a finish time or the disappointed glare of their P.E. teacher, but with an after-party of live DJs spinning such artists as Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, David Guetta, and others?all before one last avalanche of foam engulfs the dancing throngs.
