Sisters-In-Motion-Memphis began with a small group of concerned African-American women (Tanya Bowley, Kim Collins, Renee Horne, Jayna Kelly, Linda Sessoms, Clintonia Simmons and Faye Simmons) who decided to take charge of their lifestyles by promoting wellness.
Members of the group, who range in age from 24-60+, stay in motion through running, jogging and walking. Membership has grown to more than 130, with participants from diverse professions such as teachers, lawyers, healthcare professionals, financiers, entrepreneurs, journalists, business professionals, graduate students and home makers.
