There is no off-season for the race organizers at Get Racing. Roughly once a month from January to November they host a new event, which usually coincides with an upcoming holiday such as St. Patrick's Day, Independence Day, or Vice President's Day. The slew of races, which range from 1Ks to triathlons and half marathons, all use race-bib computer chips to time runners.

Imagine the moment when a shy, introverted young girl steps in front of a room full of people for the first time and speaks with confidence and clarity. This is a regular occurrence at Drama Kids International, where experienced teachers use a unique, copyrighted curriculum to help shape and focus outgoing children or draw shy children out of their shells. Classes for kids as young as 3 refine speech techniques, dramatic movement, and imagination, giving them the confidence to perform in front of an audience or finally ask their parents to change their names to Thespis. For older kids, aged 12–18, Drama Kids International offers the DKI Acting Academy, where serious theater kids can expand their speaking, acting, and auditioning skills through exercises and performances.
