A Better Mid-South: 6th annual South Memphis 5K

A Better Mid-South: 6th annual South Memphis 5K

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5.

When I think about Memphis and the challenges we face, I often think in terms of geography.

Where are the challenged communities? That often takes me to South Memphis and North Memphis, but at the end of the day that's not a fair assessment. There's so much good going on in those communities -- it's unfortunate the negative often outweighs the good in those neighborhoods.

One of those good things is coming up soon and I want you to have the opportunity to take part. It's the 6th annual South Memphis 5k on Saturday, November 5 at 10 a-m.  But time is running out to register.  You need to sign up by October 23. The fee is $20 for adults, free for students, but $5 if they want a t-shirt.

All money raised goes to St. Andrew AME Church community outreach programs.

If you want to register, please go to my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South or email me at: abettermidsouth@wmctv.com and I will send you the information.

Highlighting the good in our communities makes this A Better Mid-South.
