By founding Bon Bicycles, Adam Kurtz is just following his natural inclination to assist those in need. In his free time, when he isn't delivering rental beach cruisers across Hilton Head Island, Adam works as a paramedic. He is devoted to helping others, and his business reflects that. A portion of the business's profits goes to Hope in the Light, a mission in Boucan, Haiti, committed to providing safe living conditions, clean water, nutritious food, and an education for the children in their orphanage and school.
Adam helps out his clients by making the rental process as simple as possible. Customers reserve a HHWheels beach cruiser and arrange to have it delivered anywhere on Hilton Head Island at any time of any day. A week later, a Bon Bicycles representative picks the bike up. Five sizes of bike are available, from attachable trail-a-bikes up to full Adult models. Youth sizes and above come with a basket, and renters receive a combination lock for every two bikes to keep them from being stolen or to help them, maybe, fall in love.

Board-certified ER physician Dr. Don Gates knows the dangers of obesity first hand. After experiencing a 40-pound weight gain and a huge spike in blood sugar levels a little more than a decade ago, he decided it was time to take control. Today, he draws from his own past experiences to help others manage obesity-related disorders or remain at an ideal weigh. At Scale Solutions, he oversees medical weight loss programs that rely on appetite suppressants, diet plans, and fitness routines. To help clients overcome fatigue, he also administers lipotropic injections that are rich in vitamin B12 and metabolism-boosting amino acids.
The Metabolic Medical Center chaperones clients along the rewarding journey toward healthier lifestyles with safe and effective weight-loss treatments. The two-week plan begins with an initial visit to the affable Dr. John Parker’s office, whereupon he conducts a thorough examination, making sure to inquire about patients’ family history of forgetting to eat an apple a day. Clients then undergo a body-fat analysis, a BMI test, blood work, an EKG, and additional body measurements as needed. Dr. Parker works with each patient to craft a customized weight-loss plan that incorporates a helpful program book, two meal-replacement supplements for each day of the two-week period, three optional vitamin B12 shots, a two-week supply of vitamins and minerals, and a briefing on the convoluted rules of flashlight tag.
