A special Baptist guest helps KROC Memphis Center celebrate first birthday

Baptist pediatric mascot P.D. Parrot was among the invited guests to the Salvation Army KROC Memphis Center’s first birthday party. In addition, as part of Baptist Medical Group’s Measure Up, Pressure Down campaign, Baptist offered free body mass index and blood pressure checks.

Opened late last February, the center is a 100,000-square-foot recreation, education, worship and arts facility that includes basketball courts, soccer fields, a theater, aquatic features and the Baptist Memorial Health Care Fitness Center, which Memphis Flyer readers voted the best in the city last year.
