Partnership Walk Memphis
Date: Saturday October 26, 2013
Location: Tom Lee Park, Memphis TN
Last year 2,000 participants took a step to end global poverty in the annual Memphis Partnership Walk at Tom Lee Park. This year’s Walk/Run raised $255,000. 100% of the funds raised at Partnership Walk go directly to projects supported by the Foundation, not a cent is spent on administration. An additional $190,000 was raised at the Memphis Partnership Gala on September 22 to support the Foundation’s projects.
Thank you to everyone for coming out and making the 2012 event such a success!
