presented by The Memphis Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

The Physical and Mental Health Committee of the Memphis Alumnae Chapter (MAC) is concerned with the Total Woman: Mind, Body, and Spirit of our members and women, particularly within the African American community. Our chapter aligns with our commitment to the national Physical and Mental Health programmatic thrust and supports the national initiative, TheDeltaCare. This internal wellness campaign was created to promote self-care through physical wellness, emotional wellness, and awareness/advocacy. For MAC, this translates into comprehensive health education programming, including health fairs, sisterly relational events, and the support of numerous community events.

Since its chartering in 1935, the Memphis Alumnae Chapter has been at the forefront of public and 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 12 years, the Memphis Alumnae Chapter has raised over $300,000 to provide scholarships to a diverse range of deserving students. 

The Memphis Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. cordially invites you to participate in our 3rd Annual Best of Me 5K Fun Run/Walk. This event will raise money to benefit our organization’s Maggie McDowell Scholarship Fund, which is annually awarded to deserving high school students in Memphis and the Shelby County area who have been accepted into accredited institutions of higher learning. The Inaugural Best of Me 5K Fun Run/Walk raised a total of $8,790. Our goal is to double our fundraising efforts in 2024.

The 3rd Annual Best of Me 5K Fun Run/Walk will be held at Overton Park on Saturday, May 18, 2024. The festivities will kick off at 7:30 a.m. with music and warmups, followed by the start of the race at 8:00 a.m. Medals will be given to all 5K registrants.
