  • Memphis
    The LuvMud Benefit Event sends costumed sprinters charging and trudging along a 5K course riddled with mud, obstacles, and more mud in order to raise funds for Habitat for Hope, a nonprofit organization supporting the families of seriously ill children. Having grown each year since its inception in 2010, the annual race challenges individuals and teams to conquer tough terrain designed with varying levels of difficulty so as to accommodate participants of all fitness levels. Along the route, spectators gather to scout the action, and volunteers stand by to provide directions and tips, such as reminding racers not to eat any mud without sprinkling on a few blades of grass first. After making it through the final, massive, 50-foot mud pit and crossing the finish line, finishers recharge their bionic legs with fruit, water, and snacks. Meanwhile, an all-day festival celebrates the occasion with live music and food vendors, and showering equipment supplied by the Memphis Fire Department cleans off any caked-on mud and sweat from the race. LuvMud also holds special races that allow participants’ dogs to join in the fun, as well as all-night camping events that include nighttime racing and live music.

  • Downtown Aviation
    There are no roads in the sky—just clouds and the floating mansions of America's billionaires. Similarly, Downtown Aviation's flying lessons don't follow one set pathway to pilot certification. Using FAA-approved materials, the school's certified flight instructors can teach a fast-paced course or follow a more casual lesson plan. But the endpoint remains the same: a student, private, or sport certificate. One of the most exciting moments during training occurs approximately 20–25 hours into instruction, when students take the controls for their first solo flight. As they soar over Memphis or Olive Branch, taking in bird's eye views through the cockpit windshield, some may feel inspired to pursue flying as a career. Luckily, they won't have to look for a new school. Downtown Aviation's faculty trains pilots for their commercial certificates and airline transport pilot licenses. The staff can also maintain pilots' aircrafts at their Cessna-certified service center.

  • Woodruff-Fontaine House
    Successful carriage maker Amos Woodruff began construction on his Memphis home in 1870, designing the property in French Victorian style with a mansard roof and cypress woodwork and flooring. A year later, the mansion hosted the wedding of Amos's daughter, Mollie, marking the first public event and first of countless weddings to be held on the property. Cotton factor Noland Fontaine owned the dwelling after Amos; following the death of Noland and his wife, the home became an art school and then a vacant building until the Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities acquired the space in 1961. Nestled among magnolia trees, the restored mansion still shelters handwritten autographs and memories of the craftsmen who helped erect the building. Just as it did for Mollie Woodruff, the property also continues to host weddings and special events with a front lawn that accommodates up to 250 visitors. A collection of more than 1,000 pieces of Victorian-era fashion, such as wedding gowns, undergarments, overgarments, and stiletto horseshoes, can be found in the home. The clothing display changes several times throughout the year along with the museum's rotating exhibitions.
