  • PAWS Chicago
    In 1997 PAWS Chicago set out to halt the unnecessary killing of thousands of homeless cats and dogs in the region, establishing a No Kill shelter and organizing public-awareness campaigns. More than 30,000 adoptions later, team members still visit Chicago Animal Care and Control six days a week to take as many pets into their care as they have room for, providing necessary medical attention as well as spaying and neutering services. The Lurie Spay/Neuter Clinic and GusMobile spay and neuter van serve the pets of low-income families and tackle the problem of animal overpopulation in city neighborhoods, catching, treating, and releasing more than 18,000 cats and dogs every year to prevent the unchecked growth of local animal colonies. Through the Adoption and Humane Center in Lincoln Park, PAWS also adopts out animals that enter its shelters. The center maintains a cage-free facility to ensure pets live in comfort and dignity until they can be matched with an adoptive family.

  • Stop the Clot Chicago 5K
    Stop the Clot Chicago 5K was started to honor the memory of one man. But its founders hope to help save the 274 people who die of blood clots each day. In that spirit, the race benefits the National Blood Clot Alliance, a nonprofit advocacy organization that educates healthcare professionals and the general public about the diagnosis and prevention of blood clots. This year's race takes place on the Montrose Beach lake path, with runners of all fitness levels and shoe sizes welcome to join the event. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age group, and everyone will be treated to an after party with live entertainment, raffles, and pancakes from Babycakes Gourmet.

  • K9 Fit Club
    More than a decade ago, K9 Fit Club founder Tricia Montgomery admitted it to herself: She and her dog were both overweight. They set out to lose weight together, and after dropping more than 130 pounds, Montgomery created K9 Fit Club to share her success with others. The curriculum is focused on joint dog-and-owner workouts—the core classes include games of fetch, obstacle courses, and cardio exercises, and others cover tai chi and dancing. The success of Montgomery's program has captured the attention of The Biggest Loser producer David Broome, who will bring Montgomery's program to reality TV in 2014.

  • Hope for the Day- Humboldt Mile
    One mile might not seem like very far to go, but that short distance is all it takes to make strides toward suicide prevention and mental-health education. That's the goal of the Humboldt Mile—a community race benefitting Hope for the Day, an organization that seeks to raise awareness about depression and other mental-health issues. Not only is the race for a good cause, but it's sure to be fun, thanks to post-race festivities from local sponsors such as Revolution Brewing, Dimo's Pizza, and Dark Matter Coffee.
