Meritan just recently moved into their brand new home at the end of December and now are located in downtown Memphis. The reason for this move was for several reasons, such as most of their clients are from that area, allowing the company to be more accessible to them. After talking with several employees, it seems that the building being one floor has made everything much easier not having to deal with elevator issues or stairs. After touring the building and speaking with the employees, it’s easy to see how this move has assisted in the ability to effectively fulfill their mission within the organization.

If you don’t know, Meritan is a health and social service non-profit that was founded in 1961 and since then they have added on foster care into their work. The heart of everyone who works at Meritan is what makes the company who they are today, they so effortlessly love on their clients, from babies to seniors, and pour themselves into improving the well-being of others and creating an independence into their lives. They live out their mission statement and allow that to make a huge impact on the lives they touch. 

Meritan’s largest fundraiser that they do every year is the Meritan Moonlight Classic Bike Tour, and this year they are re-vamping the event to something bigger and better!

Along with their company, they have moved their bike tour downtown where Bass Pro has so generously offered up their space as the representing sponsor. Another one of the differences is that this year they are providing two routes, one is eight miles and the other is sixteen. They are also moving the start time from midnight to 10pm, therefore there is no excuse to bring your kids out to the fun too! People drive from all over the country to attend this event as they deck out their bikes with lights and bling and put on all sorts of costumes to celebrate. The date this year is August 4th, so put it on your calendar and spread the word!
