Why a healthier 901?
Memphis, a city of resilience and strength, is ready for change. Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare’s most recent Community Health Needs Assessment identified heart disease and cancer as the top causes of death in Shelby and DeSoto Counties. We also know that obesity currently affects more than one-third of our Mid-South community. That means at least 1 out of every 3 people faces a significantly higher risk of life-threatening conditions. But we refuse to be bound by statistics and, together, we can work to change those numbers.
It’s time to start a movement toward a Healthier 901, not only for our beloved community but for each and every one of us. Studies show that losing weight can help lower the risk of heart attacks and cancer, which can ultimately save lives. But losing that weight and being healthy is up to you. So, we are issuing a powerful challenge to all Mid-South residents, asking you to take action and ignite the change within. Together, we will rise and shape a healthier, more vibrant Mid-South.

Our goal: 1,000,000 pounds lost throughout the Mid-South over three years.
