At Padgett Medical Center, the most common complaint on patients' clipboards is pain.

Brothers in both life and business, chiropractic physicians Dr. Tan Burns-Tran and Dr. Thang Tran know that what feels like simple stress and strain can actually be a sign of a bigger underlying problem. That's why they've stocked their office with the most advanced diagnostic technology to help pinpoint the unique problems plaguing each body. Their Microfit analysis program provides a detailed breakdown of total body health––including a fitness profile, diet analysis, and cardiovascular assessment––which can then be used to recommend an appropriate course of treatment that may include anything from regular massage to a personalized nutrition program.
Beyond strengthening spines and treating common chiropractic maladies such as joint or neck pain, headaches, and injuries sustained from auto accidents, the office also offers yoga and Pilates classes for those looking to strengthen their core and increase range of motion. It also plays host to workshops on topics such as arthritis management or common diet pitfalls, as well as daily sing-alongs for those who frequently forget what the neck bone is connected to.

UCP's nationally accredited Early Childhood Education program practices inclusionary education, in which children with developmental disabilities interact with and learn alongside their typically developing peers, developing new social and communicative skills from their engagement. Kids without disabilities who are in the program learn how to respect and interact positively with people who have disabilities. UCP hopes to encourage reading in all of these young children by exposing them to books that they can explore by turning pages and pointing to pictures. With this campaign, UCP hopes to stock its library with new books for its preschool program.
Cameron Parker founded Orlando Pub Crawl, LLC in 2005 to organize the bar-going experience into a convivial group event. The company's primary mission is organizing trips for up to 1,000 revelers at a time, styled after themes and occasions including the Kentucky Derby, '80s Nights, and Cinco de Mayo. Partiers hop from bar to bar, enjoying complimentary drinks, admission, and other specials as they mingle and socialize amid festivities, games, and libations. The pub-crawl team can also tailor private crawls for groups of 100 or more, allowing companies, organizations, and poker-playing dogs to journey to bars in organized packs. But not all the company's events are drinking-themed: there are also madcap challenges such as The Amazing Mind Race, which sends teams scattering across cities to solve clues and discover checkpoints.
