  • The Living Well Foundation
    While childhood obesity is a topic that receives widespread attention, registered nurse Jean Huelsing uncovered a facet of the issue that many have overlooked: some of the very "fat camps" designed to help overweight kids slim down were actually part of the problem. She takes issue with these camps? short-term approach, as they rely on fast-acting diets rather than instilling healthier lifestyle habits. Striving to succeed where other camps failed, Jean started Camp Jump Start in 2003 and, just three years and a score of happy campers later, founded The Living Well Foundation to extend the reach of her holistic-wellness principles. The organization now hosts a wide range of camps for adults and children alike. They?re held at Living Well Village, which occupies 250 acres in the woods, where campers can develop a love for active pastimes through outdoor activities, such as navigating ropes courses, fishing, and juggling beavers.

  • 5K Root Beer Foam Fest
    As part of the annual Arnold Days celebration, the 5K Root Beer Foam Fest sends sports drinks to the sidelines in favor of—what else?—root beer. Along a route that winds through Arnold City Park, water- and root beer-chugging stations keep runners and walkers fueled for the five-kilometer jaunt. A foam-pit finish line awaits at the course's end, welcoming participants into a post-race party with root beer drinks, breakfast foods, and a photographer documenting the day's events. But it's not all foam and games: serious racers can compete for awards, which are given to the top performers in seven different age groups. Plus, the 5K is professionally timed, meaning runners can leave their antique grandfather clocks at home.

  • Graffiti Run
    The creators of The Colorful 5K use the term ?run? very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, the Graffiti Run encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.
