Ray Heon’s friends and family describe him as a man who had a big heart, a part of which was devoted to the Washington Redskins. These traits inspired the name for The Big Red 5K, a race established to celebrate Ray’s life after he died of cancer last November. Participants are welcome to run or walk the course, which begins at Lyman Memorial High School, loops around the Lebanon Green, and then ends at the Jonathan Trumbull Library. It’s fitting that those two buildings bookend the race, as a portion of all proceeds will be used to donate technological devices to them.
Runners can commemorate their day by posing for photographers before or after the race, and they each receive a race packet with a T-shirt, race bib, and swag from the race sponsors. Participants or robots at the end of their battery packs can also opt to complete just a small segment of the race (one lap around the Lebanon Green). Those there to cheer runners on can spend the day listening to live music and visiting the food and merchandise vendors.
The dental team at Waddell Family Dentistry made a list of reasons patients fear the dentist and then designed a practice expressly to cross out each one. It replaced metal drills with Waterlase hand pieces, which reduce the heat and vibration caused from metal rubbing against teeth. Before each procedure, team members educate their patients on what to expect, fielding any questions and arming them with detailed aftercare instructions. For patients who feel especially nervous, they administer a variety of oral and IV sedations and measure the half-life of each in accordance to the length of procedures in order to minimize posttreatment grogginess.

Even when you lead an active, healthy lifestyle, it can be tough to get rid of fat in certain areas of your body. At I-lipo AZ, experts help clients banish that fat once and for all with noninvasive i-Lipo treatments. The system uses low levels of laser energy to break down stored fat in the love handles, stomach, thighs, and other trouble spots and flush them out through the body's natural metabolic processes. Because it doesn't involve any painful surgeries or embarrassing funhouse mirrors and won't affect the surrounding tissues, the treatment requires no downtime. What's more, the experts of I-lipo AZ claim that the treatment can trim two to four centimeters from their clients' abdomens in a single session.
In 1998, after 25 years operating health clubs across Phoenix, Kelly Bruce jumped at the opportunity to open his own club, Fitness 1 Gym. Today, Fitness 1 has expanded to locations across Phoenix, each and every one helmed by Kelly and his sons Chad, Richard, and Bobby. “We don’t just own them,” Chad proudly says, “we run them and we’re in the clubs everyday.” The amenities are certainly attractive, but it seems that what has really made Fitness 1 successful is the Bruce's dedication to their family-run enterprise. “I think that our members feel at home,” says Bobby. “I think [they] realize that it’s not a show… they're coming in here to get to work, to get results.”
