Young Life is a Christian ministry with branches around the world, all dedicated to a simple goal: supporting kids throughout the confusions of adolescence. That process hinges on a huge pool of adult mentors willing to hang out with kids on the kids' turf, whether that's soccer practice, the mall, or meetings of the PG-13 Movie Club. The ministry also hosts events, such as weekly parties and summer camps, where kids learn the fundamentals of Christianity along with key leadership and decision-making skills.

The instructors at Sky Valley Academy help children build confidence and self esteem through gymnastics, cheerleading, and stunting classes geared toward students of all levels. School-year classes let kids blow off some academic steam with afternoon and evening sessions, while summer camps can keep kids busy and engaged all day long. In cheerleading and stunting classes, kids learn positions, jumps, hip-hop moves, and tumbling before integrating all their new skills into a routine sure to make nearby sports teams instinctively win their games. Party packages are also available for active kids and their guests to frolic on such attractions as trampolines, a tumbling pit, and bouncy castles before digging into a themed birthday cake.

The rivalry between Ducks fans and Beavers fans is built right into the Ducks vs. Beavers Rivalry Clash's race course. Supporters of the two teams, decked out in their most spirited gear, kick off the chip-timed race at separate starting lines, and begin the race by running straight towards each like old armies. Instead of a head-on collision, the two groups funnel into a single mass, sharing a race course as they vie for the fastest times on the 5K or 10K route. The speediest school wins a donation to their university's laptop scholarship program, plus the right to refer to their rival school as "our satellite campus." Regardless of the results, everyone buries the hatchet at a tailgate-style afterparty, where entertainment ranges from a tug-of-war to the most beloved of collegiate pastimes: a flip-cup tournament. The flip-cup games, as well as corn-hole and other competitive events, give racers a chance to earn more glory for their schools. There are also awards for the fastest individuals, the team of five with the lowest combined time, and the school with the lowest overall score (as determined by the sum of the top 100 runners' places).

Color Me Rad stages 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new, nontoxic pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities. Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt, sunglasses, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners younger than 8 years old can sprint for free, provided they have a waiver signed by a guardian and won't give in to demands for gold from confused leprechauns.

Strength, power, endurance, and agility. These are just four of the 10 components of fitness that the instructors of Commando Fitness promises to help its students improve. This was the dream of US Army vet Mark Daniels, to draw together his talent for personal training and his military experience to help others get fit. Virtually all of his trainers bear a military background, made evident by the workouts that use military techniques that helped soldiers the world over prepare for battle. Contrary to expectations, these instructors keep students motivated without screaming, yelling, or the use of fire. No two workouts are exactly alike, which helps students stay interested, and they take place in almost any kind of weather.
