Special thanks to the almost 20 team members who joined the FedEx sponsored local team to run and volunteer in the Melanoma Research Foundation's Memphis Miles for Melanoma 5K at Shelby Farms on Saturday.

About 400 runners signed up to participate in the event at Shelby Farms and the unseasonably cool weather contributed to a fantastic turn out.

FedEx Costa Rica Planting Trees

Aug 5, 2017

Last Saturday August 5th, we had our first FedEx Cares activity in Costa Rica for FY18. We received an invitation from the Park Ranger of the Zona Protectora de Abangares, to plant 500 trees in Las Juntas de Abangares, a location approx. 3.5 hours away from SJOA station. A total of 24 volunteers from our FedEx family participated in the activity, helping not only the creation of water in the area but also with food for monkeys and other animals that live in the woods. Attached are some pictures from the activity.

The class includes a volunteer event on Thursday at the local Foodbank. On Monday of that same week, pop-up hail storms pummeled the area and destroyed all of the 300+ newly planted tomatoes. The participants were originally scheduled to support their "food sort", along with some additional needs in their community garden.

Relay for life to conquer Cancer

Jun 3, 2017

For the last two years a group of up to 50 employees walk to conquer cancer. It is a Canadian FedEx Supply Chain initiative. 12 hours walk from dark to dawn to stand up to cancer, reach financial goals and to help create a strong community. This activities was located in the Coteau-du-Lac area in the Quebec province of Canada. Each year we wear our FedEx Cares t-shirts and walk collectively. This is a very emotional journey but we know we are making a difference. We hope to share this event with other FedEx groups in the next event in 2018.
