Our community will be demonstrating our commitment to health, sustainability and the planet on Saturday, April 21st from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the second annual Louisville Earth Walk. This family-friendly event will celebrate the planet and raise awareness about the many ways we can all take steps to make Louisville a healthier, cleaner place. In addition, the Louisville Earth Walk draws attention and support to a coalition of local organizations who work year round for a more sustainable city.

The Louisville Earth Walk will include music, information tables, brief inspirational talks, and more. The centerpiece will be a 5K walk around beautiful Iroquois Park. Registration as well as pre and post walk activities will be hosted in the Iroquois Amphitheater. Musical groups include local favorites Troubadours of Divine Bliss and Bendigo Fletcher.

While many participants will walk and register as individuals, members of the community are already assembling walking teams representing various organizations, faith communities, work places, non-profits and families. Both individual and team members can earn incentives for the pledges they get from family and friends starting with an event t-shirt for pledges of $50 or more.

Walkers can register in advance online ($15 for individuals and $10 for team members) at: tinyurl.com/EarthWalk2018.

Walker Pledge Forms, Waivers and other important details are available on our website and other important details can be found at LouisvilleEarthWalk.org/about/
