Organiser's Description

Join us for the 3rd Annual Best of Me 5K Run/Walk to benefit the Maggie McDowell Scholarship Fund of the Memphis Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated! Lace up your shoes and hit the pavement as we come together to support educational opportunities for meriting students.
Since its inception in 1935, the Memphis Alumnae Chapter has been on the forefront of public/community service and social action issues, allowing us to become transformational leaders through mentorship and offering scholarship opportunities to support educational advancement. Over the past 10 years, the Chapter has raised over $250,000 to provide scholarships to a diverse range of deserving students. The coronavirus pandemic has caused a damaging and everlasting effect on the economy, and we need your help to continue our efforts to improve and increase our scholarship giving.
We invite you to support us as a Sponsor, Virtual Participant, or In-Person participant! Whether you're a seasoned runner or prefer a leisurely stroll, everyone is welcome to participate and make a difference. Enjoy the camaraderie of fellow participants, the scenic route, local food trucks, vendors, and the satisfaction of knowing you're helping to pave the way for someone's future. Register today and step towards a brighter tomorrow!
COURSE: Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Overton Park. Strollers are permitted on the course. Pets are not allowed on the course.
