Chick-fil-a Bluff City Field Day Benefits At-Risk Youth In Mid-South

Kids and kids at heart are excited for Saturday's second Chick-fil-a Bluff City Field Day in Overton Square.

However, seeing who will benefit from the fundraiser makes the day about more than fun and games.

Proceeds from the Field Day will help two local non-profits fulfill their missions to help at-risk youth.

One such former youth is Rodney Walker. Now an adult Walker is a part-time employee at Memphis Athletic Ministries and a mentor to the kids that attend MAM.

"I see myself in some of the kids," Walker said. "Motivate them to become a better person than I was at their age and try to help them make better decisions in life."

Walker is not done being mentored himself, which is where another non-profit comes in.

My Town Miracles, started by businessman Noel Fenderson has partnered with MAM. 

In addition the financial support through fundraisers like the Field Day they are hosting, MTM offers networking opportunities to guys like Rodney.
