Supporting charities lets you help others while boosting your own self-esteem, much like running on the treadmill that powers the orphanage's generator. Give back with this Groupon.

The event also features appetizers and live entertainment, and includes an appearance by one of the faces of the cause.
Huntington’s Disease Society of America
The Huntington’s Disease Society of America has its sights set on obsolescence in the form of a cure. While that would mean shuttering the doors of its 501(c)(3) nonprofit volunteer organization, it would also mean relief for sufferers of the fatal illness, which may affect up to 250,000 people across the country. Until that day comes, its work continues. The organization oversees the Coalition for the Cure, which pools the resources and knowledge of 16 researchers across the world. While those researchers work, the organization also raises funds through a network of nationwide events—5Ks, bowling outings, dinners, cocktail parties—and directs the proceeds toward advocacy, education, and more research. A portion also goes to supporting medical, psychological, and social services at major medical facilities throughout the US.
