  • AIDS Walk Washington DC
    It's estimated that in the District of Columbia, one in every 20 adults is HIV-positive. On a wider scale, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that more than one million Americans are living with HIV—and up to one-third of them are unaware of it. AIDS Walk Washington DC first took to the streets on June 28, 1987, in an effort to increase awareness and raise money in the fight against the HIV/AIDS epidemic. It's an event that has taken place annually ever since, and one that has grown to include a timed runners' portion and a packed schedule of pre- and post-race activities. Today, Whitman-Walker Health—a non-profit, community-based organization that strives to make high quality care accessible to those affected by HIV/AIDS—orchestrates the AIDS Walk. On the event day, Whitman-Walker unveils its most prominent honor: the Courage Award, given to an individual living with HIV or AIDS who has demonstrated extraordinary behavior in fighting the disease. The day's recognition doesn't end there. A post-race celebration exalts the walk's collective accomplishments, including acknowledgement of top fundraisers.

  • The Rave Run Shakopee
    As night falls, participants in the noncompetitive Rave Run pull on neon T-shirts, don glow-in-the dark glasses, and stuff their pockets with glow sticks. Spectators look on as the throng of illuminated runners, which includes kids and adults, make their way through a 5-kilometer course that winds through city streets. The event culminates with an after party, where a DJ spin tunes and powerful lasers cast out beams that illuminate wide smiles and the secret locations of any lost arks in the vicinity. Fog machines and CO2 jets help create a high-adrenaline atmosphere as attendees dance with their glow-in-the-dark compatriots. All the fun is for a good cause; The Rave Run partners with a local charity in each participating city.

  • The Glo Run Washington DC
    The Glo Run?s 5K fun run event always takes place at night, but it doesn?t seem like it. The course is lined with black lights and lasers, and runners sport glow-in-the-dark gear from t-shirts to sunglasses. On-course DJs add to the festivities, blasting tunes as the untimed participants run, walk, or dance to the finish line. Even more DJs await them there at the glow-in-the-dark after party, which lights up the night better than a raccoon that's swallowed a flashlight.

  • Stroller Strides Fairfax Station
    Since 2001, Stroller Strides' fitness professionals and buggy-bandying workouts have helped mothers to overcome the struggles of staying in shape while caring for a wee one. Specially trained instructors helm a series of 60-minute classes, which consist of a warm-up, a power walk, and interval stations where limbs stretch resistance tubes in body-toning drills. Energizing jaunts often utilize hills, benches, and other environmental facets to augment maneuvers. Throughout the routine, engaging songs and activities keep children from growing overly fussy or pranking classmates by tossing banana peels in front of their buggies.
