  • Cosmic Fitness CrossFit
    Cosmic Fitness is an official torchbearer of the CrossFit training program, and the studio's skilled trainers build customized workout regimens for muscle proprietors of all types. In the CrossFit 101 training program, Cosmic Fitness's owners and certified CrossFit coaches Krista Debrick and Michael Fudge will introduce the fortifying CrossFit routine, working to put together a balanced regimen to best suit each group's fitness level and median Tetris score. In the courses, a high-intensity and constantly shape-shifting suite moves bodies with running, gymnastics, lifting, or rowing to help build cardiovascular endurance, strength, and speed. A limited class size of 10 people leads to individual coaching and attention, and the typical exercises work to mimic everyday movements and require minimal equipment, allowing customers to continue exercising in the comfort of their own home or local bank lobby. Classes will take place three times per week for the month, with classes scheduled at 6 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays (class times can be added to accommodate demand); after the CrossFit 101 training is completed, students are then free to move on to the regular CrossFit workout program.

  • League City Lions Club
    For the fifth year running, a forest of masts fills the South Shore Harbour as more than 400 boats beckon sea-salted skippers and land-legged first timers alike. Bay boats, ski boats, sailboats, catamarans, cruisers, and powerboats are all on display—many for sale—and the experience can include skimming across the surface on a 32-foot Yellowtail, a 45-minute jaunt on a sailboat, and a temperature-controlled diving experience for curious landlubbers. To educate audiences, speakers take to the stage, including NASA-honored scientists, marine meteorologists, and Evel Knievel’s former bodyguard and notorious adventurer Bob Bitchin, whose name should not be repeated in polite company.

  • League City Lion Club
    Since its inaugural meeting more than 60 years ago, the League City Lions Club has upheld its mission of promoting peace and understanding with volunteer community services. Special events such as carnivals, music festivals, and cook-offs allow the Lions to raise money and resources for local charities such as Leader Dogs for the Blind, Perry YMCA, and the Butler Longhorn Museum. Like the superathlete who singlehandedly powers America's electrical generators, the Lions happily accept volunteers, ever increasing their group of supporters who desire to better their community.

  • Running Bayou
    The founders of Running Bayou are so passionate about races, they manage not one, but two different types of event. The first, Coasting the Coast, is a series of 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons, and full marathons held in 10 coastal Texas cities. Their courses all followalong seaside roads and culminate in post-race beach parties with stretching clinics led by trainers and saltwater-taffy makers. Their second series, All Systems Glow 5K, take to the streets of major cities including Austin and Houston for a nighttime race for which people dress in glow clothes before cutting loose at a dance party.

  • Deer Park Community Center
    Just in time for Halloween, the Goblin Gallop 5K Run cheerfully haunts the cross-country course that winds around the Jimmy Burke Activity Center and the Battleground Golf Course. Adults head out over the grassy hills for a timed 5K, while youngsters ages 12 and under run their own race with the Kid's Monster Mile. After crossing the finish line, participants gather to listen to music, play games, and snack on eats from Whataburger. Participants are also encouraged to dress in their spookiest running shoes to enter the costume contest. And all the scary, seasonal fun is for a good cause: a portion of the proceeds will benefit The Rose, a local breast care health center.

  • Sheltering Arms Senior Services
    Founded in 1893, Sheltering Arms Senior Services has devoted more than a century to providing Houston’s elderly population with care, advocacy, and community support. Despite its long history, the nonprofit organization is only looking forward. Between 2011 and 2012, it provided seniors with 128,658 hours of personal-care assistance—including meal preparation and housekeeping—and fed 2,182 seniors a nutritious meal. And their specially designed Adult Day Center, which provides top-notch care for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. Factor in the organization's more than 20 Houston-area senior centers, where staffers offer recreational activities, health education, and legal advocacy, and it is clear that Sheltering Arms is only building upon its 120-year foundation. Sheltering Arms' mission begins with its committed corps of staff members and volunteers. Certified nurses’ aides customize and implement home-care plans that include light housekeeping, meal prep, and medication reminders. Social workers advocate for members at risk of being institutionalized by managing their financial and health casework. Volunteers make daily safety checks on seniors who are living alone and organize arts-and-crafts classes, game nights, and dances.
