Bluff City 10K Raises $30K+ for Memphis Habitat

Memphis, Tenn., May 15, 2018 – On Saturday, May 12, the fourth annual Bluff City 10K presented by Ashley HomeStore’s Hope to Dream program took off with 570 registrants signing up to support Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis’ work to help local families build and improve places to call home. This year’s event raised more than $30,000 to go toward Habitat’s mission.

Mark Temme of Memphis, Tenn. and Jaime Newman of Atoka, Tenn. were the top finishers with winning times of 38:58.44 and 44:50.75, respectively, in the morning run through Overton Square, Cooper Young and other parts of Midtown Memphis. More runner results can be found at https://bluffcity10k.racesonline.com/results.

Habitat partnered for the third year with Ashley HomeStore’s Hope to Dream program, which believes every child should have a clean, unused mattress set to call their own. A portion of every Ashley HomeStore mattress set purchased goes to provide a free twin mattress, bed frame, bedding and pillow to a child in need of a bed to call their own. Hope to Dream receives $1 from every race entry.

The Bluff City 10K wouldn’t have been possible without the sponsors who came together to contribute to its success. Sponsors for the race include Presenting Sponsor Ashley HomeStore’s Hope to Dream program; AutoZone; Briggs Equipment; Matrix Achievement Group; Overton Square; Robata Ramen & Yakitori Bar; SSR; BancorpSouth; Soli; Brim’s Snack Foods; and A.S. Barboro.
