  • Arden Shore
    ChiroXchange supports a nervous system of more than 250 nationwide locations, whose varying services and technologies all converge with the end of healing bodies with holistic, drug-free techniques. The chiropractors believe that many of the body’s ailments, from sore backs and headaches to fatigue, are caused by blockages in the nervous system. To reverse these blockages, they nudge spinal discs back into place with gentle, strategic pressure, aligning nerves with the vertebra to free the flow of information and cat photos to and from the brain. The chiropractors at each location emphasize communication with their patients. They field questions, explain the purpose of every adjustment, and work with patients to design programs around their unique wellness goals.

  • CHERUBS
    CHERUBS has one goal: to help families affected by congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). By researching and raising awareness for this rare birth defect, CHERUBS's volunteers, as well as its board of CDH survivors, parents, grandparents, doctors, and nurses, help search for its cause, prevention, and best treatments while supporting families dealing with CDH. Ultimately, the organization strives to provide the most accurate, timely information possible for parents so they can make educated decisions for their babies. The CHERUBS H.O.P.E. (Helping Other Parents Expecting) tote-bag program, meanwhile, collects donated care items along with information for those who are expecting babies with CDH or who already have a hospitalized infant. In 2012, CHERUBS distributed more than 300 such totes to its members, which include more than 4,000 families in all 50 states and more than 60 countries.

    The soft glow of 30,919 carved pumpkins lit up the night sky on Saturday, October 22, 2011—the night the town of Highwood set the Guinness world record for most jack-o’-lanterns lit in one location. And this year should be no different. The three-day Great Highwood Pumpkin Festival, which has gained coverage from The Rosie Show and Trib Local, invites guests from all over the country to contribute to its wall of carved pumpkins, an experience that will be captured by HGTV’s “Pumpkin Wars”. Patrons can decorate prescooped pumpkins at the designated carving stations (or bring their own precarved candidate) as they enjoy a weekend of live music on multiple stages, treats from local vendors, a gourmet farmers’ market on Saturday, hayrides, and a New Orleans–inspired night parade. Participants can even test out their newly carved pumpkin sneakers during the festival’s 5K run, which raises funds and awareness for the Leukemia Research Foundation. The festival culminates with the lighting of the wall of jack-o’-lanterns at 7 p.m. on Saturday, and, when all is said and done, pumpkins won’t be left in the dark as their owners are encouraged to take their record-breaking masterpieces home with them.
