  • The Living Well Foundation
    While childhood obesity is a topic that receives widespread attention, registered nurse Jean Huelsing uncovered a facet of the issue that many have overlooked: some of the very "fat camps" designed to help overweight kids slim down were actually part of the problem. She takes issue with these camps? short-term approach, as they rely on fast-acting diets rather than instilling healthier lifestyle habits. Striving to succeed where other camps failed, Jean started Camp Jump Start in 2003 and, just three years and a score of happy campers later, founded The Living Well Foundation to extend the reach of her holistic-wellness principles. The organization now hosts a wide range of camps for adults and children alike. They?re held at Living Well Village, which occupies 250 acres in the woods, where campers can develop a love for active pastimes through outdoor activities, such as navigating ropes courses, fishing, and juggling beavers.

  • R.U.S.H. 5K
    R.U.S.H. 5K, or the Run Uniting Super Heroes, encourages runners, joggers, and walkers to come dressed as their favorite comic-book hero. But strapping on a cape isn't what makes a true hero on this day?it's the fact that every participant raises money for The Sparrow's Nest, a maternity home for young women in need who are pregnant or parenting; and Bridgeway Behavioral Health, which operates two emergency, domestic violence shelters for women and children. The 5K occurs and is followed with a one-mile fun run for kids, and both races end with a celebration and awards ceremony. Here, DJs spin family-friendly music as kids practice flying in bounce houses and adults change back into their everyday disguises.

  • Cross Fit St Charles
    Founder and owner of Crossfit St. Charles, Kim Wilkes, leads a task force of experienced, certified coaches in calibrating athletic, healthy bodies during one-hour strength-training and conditioning classes. CrossFit helps fitness-seekers tone and build muscles and amplify endurance through exercises that involve power-lifting, cardio routines, kettlebells, and bench-pressing characters from Transformers. Gymnastics-inspired movements, such as handstand push-ups and ring-dipping muscle-ups, challenge athletes to stretch bodies to their threshold in a manner not often offered at traditional gyms. Limited class-sizes allow each trainee to receive individualized attention from coaches and count fellow participants with the fingers on their two hands or the two hands of someone else. The trainers at Crossfit St. Charles also impart nutritional knowledge by providing pupils with advice on how to properly energize bodies. Morning and evening classes populate the gym's schedule to accommodate both A and B personalities.
