The Louisville Earth Walk returns to Iroquois Park for its third year on Saturday, April 20, 2019. Everyone is invited to join in the celebration as we walk in support of a vision of a city where everyone, in 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 day in and day out to protect and improve the quality of life for all our citizens.
This will be a morning of fun outdoor activities designed to engage and educate the public on the steps they can take to promote a cleaner, healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.
The feature event is a 5k walk and fundraiser. Proceeds will be distributed among 12 partner organizations each of which will be on site to provide ideas and inspiration that you can take back to your home, office, group or community!
Please help us make Earth Walk 2019 a huge success! Invite your family, friends, businesses and co-workers to participate by making a tax deductible donation or register to walk. Becoming involved is easy by using the MightyCause peer to peer fundraising tool, too!
