Through raising funds for health and human services, United Way of Bedford County does a lot of good for its community. Firefighters do good for all communities.
This summer, everyday citizens get a chance to help both these organizations help others by tackling a 5K course full of intense obstacles.
Runners will find familiar obstacle-race staples including mud pits, hay bales, and water slides. But thanks to the location, there's a twist. The event's held at the Tennessee Fire & Codes Academy, so they'll also pit themselves against firefighter training challenges including a three-story fire tower. Naturally, the course climaxes in a leap through a ring of fire, followed by a brisk shower courtesy of one of the fire trucks.

Angels Stop N Play’s activity-packed playscapes unfurl before giddy kids in a spacious safety-first environment during hourly childcare services and birthday parties. Themed birthdays at the amusement emporium surround gleeful cadres with cake, games, and face painting, allowing guests-of-honor to focus on more important revelry such as playing with friends and re-enacting their favorite scenes from MAS*H on a jungle gym. Alternatively, the facility’s extensive childcare hours—including staying open until midnight on Friday and Saturday—free up parents to hit the town while tots play under the watchful eye of the CPR- and first-aid-certified staff. Kids leap imagination-first into activities designed to advance social and cognitive development, or can kick back while watching a movie, playing video games, and translating Dr. Seuss stories into Pig Latin.
The Tennessee Respite Coalition (TRC) works with family caregivers across the state of Tennessee to help provide them with short-term, temporary relief from their duties caring for adults or children with disabilities or special needs. Temporary relief can enable caregivers to satisfy their own needs and get a much-needed break from the demands of providing ongoing care.
TRC assists caregivers who look after individuals of any age, and allows them to choose their own respite provider. While their loved ones are cared for, caregivers may engage in a variety of activities, from taking a trip to spending time with other family members and catching up on other errands such as grocery shopping. In the past year, TRC has provided more than 200 families across the state of Tennessee with access to respite services.
Founded with the goal of transforming downtown Nashville into a compelling, culturally rich urban center, Nashville Downtown Partnership fosters a sense of community via fun-filled initiatives that showcase the city’s finest offerings, such as the annual Downtown Home Tour.

The Partnership creates such interactive experiences to help introduce locals to the benefits of living in the center of Music City, such as having easy access to its hundreds of restaurants as well as sports and entertainment venues.
