The YMCA Adventure Warrior Race gives kids and adults a chance to prove themselves against ropes courses, mud, water obstacles, and other unexpected mental and physical challenges—all while supporting a good cause. Amid the breathtaking views and tranquil waters of Lake Tris, runners maneuver around trees and carry heavy objects up the sometimes snow-covered Laurel Highlands mountains, climbing up to 1,000 feet as they go. Warriors aged 16 and older make a 4-mile circuit, whereas younger participants run age-appropriate distances of a half mile or a full mile. Trophies and the respect of all the woodland creatures are awarded to the top male and female runners, top male and female teams, and top co-ed team. According to the Daily American, funds raised from the race provide camp scholarships that allow kids to attend residential and day programs at the 263-acre YMCA Camp T. Frank Soles.

Colors & Bottles has received a nod for their engagingly creative events on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and within the pages of the Columbus Dispatch.

For more than 30 years, the certified picture framers of Rossier's Art Gallery have paired treasured art and collectibles with custom framing. Choosing from a wide selection of frames and mats, frame fashioners can house anything from prints or paintings to Junior's first speeding ticket using acid-free materials that help extend the life of precious works of art ($50+). The gallery also frames memorabilia, such as Steelers' jerseys or hard hats swiped from Steely McBeam. Rossier’s picture pros are happy to visit homes or offices for a free consultation on the best style of frame or a philosophical discussion on whether a collection of pencil shavings deserves to be displayed prominently. While dropping art off at Rossier’s, peruse the store’s art gallery, which showcases oils, watercolors, etchings, wire sculpture, blown glass, and more ($35+).
