Parkinson Voice Project (PVP) aims to preserve the voices and ability to swallow in people with Parkinson's disease and related neurological disorders using intensive voice therapy and follow-up support. The Speak Out full-treatment plan teaches patients to speak loudly and with intent over four to five weeks of group and individual sessions. Following the treatment, licensed master's-level speech-language pathologists run weekly groups so that patients can maintain the ability to speak and swallow. The Vivacious Voices group targets women, the 12 Angry Men group is for upper-level men, a choral group infuses exercises with song, the Power Hour group offers one-on-one attention, and Tuesday Night Talkers works with a young onset group. Since its inception, PVP has completed more than 12,000 free treatment sessions with patients with Parkinson's disease.

Hosted by former Dallas Cowboys Jay Novacek and Kevin Smith, Sportz Partnerz's ESPN "Lunch with a Legend" events invite fans to meet, greet, and eat with a selection of NFL players and veterans in private luncheons with no more than 100 attendees. Rudy's chefs barbecue infinite amounts of brisket, sausage, and chicken to fuel mingling among fans and football stars. The intimate event allows lunchers to get close enough to smell the fame for 90 minutes of posing for photographs, listening to NFL stories, and snagging barbecue-sauce-smeared autographs. The roster of NFL guests will vary by day and location, and a complete list will be available upon registration.

Both veterans of the full-contact karate circuit, coaches Bill Flowers and Jerry Byers sought to impart the hard-won lessons of their fighting days to new generations seeking discipline and self-defense skills. So in 2006, they combined their expertise, creating the KO 101© Martial Arts & Boxing Gym as a doorway into their lifelong passion. Coach Flowers holds belts in three forms of karate and 12 championship titles, achievements complemented by coach Byers' belt rankings in seven different martial-arts styles, including black belts in three schools of tae kwon do. In their gym, students train for both personal enjoyment and healthy competition, ultimately taking to the ring to spar against one another once the punching bags have run out of lunch money.
