  • 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.

  • BAM Academy
    BAM Academy isn't your run-of-the-mill gym. That will become obvious when you walk in and see people swinging on bars, bouncing off a spring-loaded floor, and literally running up the walls. The space—almost like an urban landscape—is especially equipped for parkour, a discipline that enables individuals to move through their environment quickly and fluidly. Parkour is one of several disciplines taught at BAM, along with gymnastics and natural movement programs. It's based on functional movements and emphasizes strength, balance, and coordination, making it an effective fitness regimen for exercisers of any age. Those training in parkour can eventually become skilled enough to leap over hurdles and sprint up the sides of buildings, much like a superhero trying to catch the bus. For movement efficiency, BAM offers Ballistic Movements classes which entail short workouts utilizing kettlebells, sandbags, Bulgarian bags, battling ropes, and MMA style conditioning tools to help improve mobility, joint and shoulder stability, and core strength.

  • DFW Zombie Run
    In order to escape a pack of zombies, it’s helpful to know the strengths and weaknesses of each cannibal in the horde. DFW Zombie Run equips its participants with this type of knowledge, as well as the training that may be necessary for survival in the unlikely event of a zombie apocalypse. During DFW Zombie Run’s obstacle runs, four types of zombies chase down racers, trying to snag the four health flags worn on the racers’ belts. Among zombies, there are walkers, who “simply walk around looking for an easy meal,” and then there are runners, who are “starving, ferocious, and incredibly fast,” according to the site. Transition zombies occupy the middle ground: they may look like harmless, sleep-deprived milkmaids, but can be unexpectedly triggered to hunt viciously like their runner brethren. Finally, there are creepers who lurk in narrow spaces. As runners traverse 3K, 5K, or 7K obstacle courses, they dodge all types of zombies in a quest to keep their health flags and gain eligibility for cash prizes. Zombies and racers only interact via flag—there’s no other touching allowed. Zombies are limited to snagging one flag per runner, and runners are limited to using their feet and hands for locomotion. According to founder Jeff, a passion for “amusement parks, thrill rides, and fitness” inspired the creation of DFW Zombie Run. He also cited “a love for action, adventure, and horror movies.”
