The Louisville Earth Walk, a non-competitive community event including a live 5k walk, at home participation and virtual programming, moves to Cherokee Park for its fourth year on Saturday, October 24, 2020.

Everyone is invited to join in this celebration in support of a vision of a city where every neighborhood has safe and clean water, air and soil. This family-friendly event will celebrate our beautiful planet while raising both awareness and funds for the wonderful organizations in our city that work to protect and improve the quality of life for all our citizens.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in order to provide the best opportunities for the public to engage safely, we’ve incorporated more virtual components to our programming, at home participation and designed a walk course and format that allows for maximum safety by spreading participants out along the course and following the best and most current safety recommendations available.

Safety considerations allowing, we will offer a live post-walk celebration including musical performances, poetry and some inspirational quick-take environmental messages as well as an “information zone” of exhibitors and a children’s play area.

Please help us make this year’s Earth Walk a huge success by registering today. There are three registration options: the 5K Walk (live at Cherokee Park), the 5K Virtual Walk (your pace in your space), and the Virtual Free Form (run, dance, meditate or . . . .)! Invite your family, friends, and co-workers to join us by participating on October 24 and/or by making a donation today.

Proceeds from the Louisville Earth Walk are distributed among the 13 locally-based environmentally-focused nonprofits that organize the event and supports their efforts to protect and improve the quality of life for all our citizens and neighborhoods.

They are: Cultivating Connections, Food Literacy Project, Greater Louisville Sierra Club, Louisville Climate Action Network, Louisville Grows, Louisville Sustainability Council, Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, Kentucky Conservation Committee, Kentucky Interfaith Power and Light, Kentucky Waterways Alliance, Passionist Earth and Spirit Center, Project Warm, West Jefferson County Community Task Force.
