  • Striking Beauties
    When conjuring up the image of a serious boxer, it's natural for most people to picture a brawny man who is dripping with sweat, missing his teeth, and wearing a prosthetic bee stinger. Striking Beauties' founder, Dena Paolino—pretty, petite, and powerful female boxer—wanted to change that. Knowing that many females felt out of place in the male-dominated sport, Dena spearheaded her all-female boxing gym in 2009 to introduce fellow women to the exhilarating and physically demanding sport of boxing in a uninhibited, comfortable environment. At the 24-hour studio, electric-pink walls beam down on cardio equipment, free weights, and punching bags. Here, Dena and her staff of certified instructors lead the studio's signature boxing workouts, which have been praised by an abundance of media publications. In each session, coaches lead energetic rounds of intense exercises and boxing movements designed to tone muscles, strengthen cores, and slim physiques, as well as boost self-confidence and determination. The staff also strives to build a sense of community amongst members, cultivating a space where women can encourage each other and network.

  • Breeze Against Wheeze 5K run or 3K walk
    Devised in 2001 by a Brown University medical student in order to support Hasbro Children's Hospital's Asthma Camp, the annual Breeze Against Wheeze 5K run and 3K walk raises a quarter of the funds the camp needs each year to educate youngsters about managing a disease that stands as the leading cause of child hospitalization nationwide. At the start of the race, athletes trek across the Brown University campus and down Blackstone Boulevard, speeding past other runners or strolling at a heart-healthy pace to show their anti-asthma verve. The top competitor in each age bracket, plus the three fastest men and women overall, win a bounty of gift certificates and sports gear to help fuel their future challenges, while postrace raffles lend the chance for any participant to be crowned a winner. Before the adult events, kids can race for free, testing their endurance and agility without crawling through the TV screen into their favorite video game.
