    Since its inaugural meeting more than 60 years ago, the League City Lions Club has upheld its mission of promoting peace and understanding with volunteer community services. Special events such as carnivals, music festivals, and cook-offs allow the Lions to raise money and resources for local charities such as Leader Dogs for the Blind, Perry YMCA, and the Butler Longhorn Museum. Like the superathlete who singlehandedly powers America's electrical generators, the Lions happily accept volunteers, ever increasing their group of supporters who desire to better their community.

  • Cosmic Fitness CrossFit
    Cosmic Fitness is an official torchbearer of the CrossFit training program, and the studio's skilled trainers build customized workout regimens for muscle proprietors of all types. In the CrossFit 101 training program, Cosmic Fitness's owners and certified CrossFit coaches Krista Debrick and Michael Fudge will introduce the fortifying CrossFit routine, working to put together a balanced regimen to best suit each group's fitness level and median Tetris score. In the courses, a high-intensity and constantly shape-shifting suite moves bodies with running, gymnastics, lifting, or rowing to help build cardiovascular endurance, strength, and speed. A limited class size of 10 people leads to individual coaching and attention, and the typical exercises work to mimic everyday movements and require minimal equipment, allowing customers to continue exercising in the comfort of their own home or local bank lobby. Classes will take place three times per week for the month, with classes scheduled at 6 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays (class times can be added to accommodate demand); after the CrossFit 101 training is completed, students are then free to move on to the regular CrossFit workout program.

  • Red Frog Events
    In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music. The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.
