the project

JUICE Orange Mound seeks to establish our annual community health and wellness initiative called Round The Mound. This family friendly event will raise health and nutrition awareness for residents in the community and open the community to the citizens of Memphis in order to improve the reputation of the community.  Our ambitious goal is to register 500 energetic walkers and runners by October 1st. 

Many 5K events are hosted throughout the city but NONE have been carried out in Historic Orange Mound.  Round The Mound will make history!  To add to the excitment of the future, a generous donor has given the supporters of JUICE Orange Mound a match challenge.  Once we raise half the cost of the event, they will be matched 100%!  Help us reach our goals and be sure to register your team TODAY :D

why we're doing it

As the oldest African American community in the City of Memphis, Historic Orange Mound is proud of its rich history.  A community of 118 streets, 4 schools, six 100-year-old churches, and 982 lots, Historic Orange Mound is honored to be named a Preserve America Community by First Lady Michelle Obama.  Despite our noteworthy history, many current residents of Historic Orange Mound are affected by poverty.  The hope for the future is that we as a community can reclaim our self-sufficiency and pride.

JUICE Orange Mound joins a select group of established 501c3 organizations serving Historic Orange Mound.  Of these organizations, only one focuses solely on providing more access to quality food and raising nutrition awareness of residents in the community.  The Round The Mound: 5K Walk/Run Event seeks to educate residents about not only the benefits of living an active lifestyle but also the choices that can be made to enhance the nutrition value of consumed foods.  This significant health and wellness event will make an impact in the lives of entire families, from infants to seniors.
