On the morning of September 11, 2001, Robert Herzog dropped off his laundry, picked up his mail, and took the local C train to work instead of the express A train. When he arrived for work at the north World Trade Center tower that morning, nearly 300 of his coworkers were dead. Stunned by his inexplicable escape from death, Herzog battled through his trauma by focusing on the good things in his life. Earlier that year, he met his wife-to-be playing coed softball. He had enjoyed the league but felt he could do better. Tempered by the sense of charity and community that was so ubiquitous after September 11, he opened ZogSports—a sports league that donates 10% of its profits to charity—in 2002.
Since then, leagues have spread from New York and the northeast out to Atlanta and the Twin Cities. Casual competitors in their 20s and 30s team up in touch-football leagues and indoor-volleyball leagues, making new friends on the field, at postgame happy hours, and at preseason press conferences.
When teams sign up for ZogSports's leagues, they choose a charity to represent. From there, teams compete to win the league championship, come up with the funniest team name, or order the most drinks at the bar after the game, all of which earn them money for their charity of choice. To date, the company has donated more than $1.5 million to various charities.

Their group, private, and prenatal sessions emphasize proper body alignment and breath work.

During the 45-minute video consultation, a Georgia Billiard Academy instructor leads students as young as six years old through fundamentals and drills while recording the students’ motions from three angles, gauging their skill level, and offering criticism. One-on-one training sessions, where instruction is based on the data gathered from the consultation, include drills and tips that will help students earn street cred in streets where cred is solely based on being good at pool. While GBA's Saturday morning appointments are reserved for junior players, those older than 13 can schedule appointments from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday–Friday and until 6 p.m. on Saturdays.
