In honor of Forrest, the organization strives to support families dealing with similar difficult situations and to give back to regional children’s hospitals like Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, Children’s Hospital at Erlanger in Chattanooga, Baptist Women’s Memorial Hospital, and St. Jude Children’s Hospital, where the amazing medical staff fights for thousands of children each year.

A team of more than 100 partner companies have come together to host FREE events, along with an array of positive-oriented media and philanthropic initiatives to enrich, engage and impact the community. Our mission is to #PowertheGOOD and we invite you to join with us.

Go Ape Tree Top Adventure & Zip Lines

Go Ape Tree Top Adventure & Zip Lines

Go ape tree top

adventure & zip lines

By Alden Zuck

MSM Mission Works brings life insurance to multi-cultural middle-class America. Click to learn more!

Treetop Adventure is a challenging high-ropes and zip line course, and it sure works up a sweat in the heat of the summer.

Is it worth the temperature?

The answer is a strong YES!

When you arrive to the course they took us through all the training needed while on ground in order to know how to use the carabiners correctly.

And it’s so easy!

Once you get that simple process down to make sure you are always hooked in, you can focus on having a blast up in the trees and flying down zip lines. It was fun, challenging, and a wonderful view. It’s a course that takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete as you move throughout the beautiful landscape. The high-ropes course “includes suspended obstacles, swings, and breathtaking zip. lines. [It engages] every sense in a fully immersive and visually stunning forest setting.” (GoApe).

The amount of variation in the rope courses are a blast and it’s a great experience for groups, party’s, outings, or whatever your group may be! Even if you are afraid of heights, then this is exactly what you should do to face that fear and have a good time doing it!

I mean really, hire someone to cut it already. Make sure they trim the edges, and for god's sake clean your flower beds. I am sorry there's more. You could live with a little fertilizer. Not done! So gutters around your house could use some attention too!

Roundhouse Revival 3

Roundhouse Revival 3

Roundhouse Revival 3
By Roy Barnes

$100 off & FREE DESIGN CONSULTATION

$20 Off YOUR FIRST LAWN SPRAY

DOWNTOWN SUNDAY BRUNCH

Come Out to the Coliseum
Roundhouse Revival is coming to the Mid-South Coliseum for the third time on Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 2-10 p.m. Like our previous events, it will be a FREE community event celebrating the great spirit and brands of the Coliseum, and new possibilities for its future.
Roundhouse Revival 3 will again feature music and wrestling in rings in front of the Coliseum, and also pickup basketball games and robot matches in the middle of Early Maxwell. We’ll have community groups and vendor booths setup along the Coliseum’s signature front porch and water slides and misting tents for fun and cooling. And some of Memphis’ finest food trucks will be lining the far edge of Early Maxwell.
We’re  throwing Roundhouse 3 because he Mid-South Coliseum is a uniquely beloved public building, arguably touching more lives in its existence than any still standing in the region. From its opening in 1964, it has always represented the better angels of our civic nature. It was built by Memphis and Shelby County for equal access by all its citizens, the first public facility designed and built for integration. The citizens of the Mid-South made it theirs, mixing our local talent with the global talent that toured Memphis to create an authenticity that is irreproducible.

Roundhouse Revival celebrates the special connection of the citizens of the Mid-South to a place they built and consecrated with their creativity, intelligence, talent, athleticism, and humor. The Coliseum’s special connection to the people of the Mid-South is unmistakable, and is the bedrock, in our opinion, on which we will build a reopened Mid-South Coliseum.

2015’s Roundhouse Revival 1 helped stopped the bulldozers of demolition by demonstrating the overwhelming public support and community spirit of the Coliseum. Since then, the Coliseum Coalition has continued to hold free public events (Roundhouse 2 and a showing of the wrestling movie, Memphis Heat), appeared in parades and events from Frayser to Soulsville, created a physical assessment of the building, created a business plan for a reopened Mid-South Coliseum and numerous other documents that simultaneously dispelled the old myths about the Coliseum and demonstrated the great building’s viability. Additionally, we have given countless tours of the building to investors, leaders, key citizens, influencers, and media to help tell the real story of the Coliseum — that it is, and has always been, a building of the future. Beautiful, authentic, robust, popular, beloved..

So on Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 2-10pm, let’s return to the Coliseum. Let’s “Open Up the Door!”

Yet, although the Coliseum appears saved from malicious destruction, it also remains reopened. And the path forward towards that goal doesn’t appear clear. So we decided to return with the public to the building for Roundhouse 3. On the eve of the County general elections, and Federal and State primary elections, we’ll once again put the Coliseum at the center of Memphis and Shelby County’s hopes for our best future.

Hanging Out at Memphis Rox

Hanging Out at Memphis Rox

hanging out at
memphis rox

By Duy Nguyen

There was word on the street about a new rock climbing gym in Memphis. The #FunCrew had to check it out.

#ClimbisLife is not a part of my list of descriptive hashtags I would give myself, but I’ve seen a couple rock climbing spaces. The environment of Memphis Rox is exactly what I expected it to be, welcoming. As it should be with the people of One Family Memphis putting the space together for the community.

Let’s just get one thing straight. They have everything you could possibly need in a gym and rock climbing. Let’s start with the gym equipment Squat racks, weight benchIf heights is what you’re after the “Grand Canyon” top rope area has 50ft walls for you to scale up. Trained staff is there to belay  and give helpful hints if you get into a tight spot on the way up or down (Ha! Get it? You go up, then you go down? No? Moving on.) Then there’s the bouldering area where height is less of a challenge and raw skill is tested, no strings attached, literally. The mats are closer to you as falls are expected when one starts testing their limits but as always the Memphis Rox staff are there to help. Better yet, you can ask a complete stranger for tips if they are bouldering next to you. Everyone wants to see someone else accomplish a challenging climb. Get to know someone, make some climbing buddies because there’s no reason not to in such a fun place. A juice bar is a couple steps away from the climbing area to replenish your energy so you can conquer new routes.

Now let’s talk about entry. The facility has suggested prices for everyone but if you “can’t pay it’s okay”. You just need five hours of your time donated to either helping out around the gym or you can volunteer those hours at a local organization and that will get your membership taken care of for the whole month! WHAT?! Did he say I get the whole month for five hours? Yes, access to a gym to stay healthy for just volunteering and making your community better. That’s a win/win.

It was fun, we had a BLAST! If you don’t believe me check out the video!
