The UofL Sustainability Council has a Racing Group for the 2020 Louisville Earth Walk! It is easy and free to sign up to be a part of our team - just visit the UofL Sustainability Racing Group page and click “Join Group.” Donations are welcomed, but participation is free and you can chose to engage wherever and however is most convenient for you!

The annual Louisville Earth Walk is going city-wide this year out of respect for everyone’s safety during COVID-19. So while we will not gather together in one place at one time on Saturday, October 24th, everyone is invited to participate - from everywhere.

Gifts to Louisville Earth Walk directly support 11 distinct community-based organizations that share a vision where every neighborhood has safe and clean water, air, and soil. The Earth Walk benefits the West Jefferson County Community Task Force, Project Warm, Passionist Earth and Spirit Center, Louisville Sustainability Council, Louisville Grows, Louisville Climate Action Network, Kentucky Interfaith Power and Light, Kentucky Conservation Committee, Kentuckians for the Commonwealth, Greater Louisville Sierra Club, and Cultivating Connections. Collectively we work for comprehensive change that involves personal actions, effective policies, and the quest for environmental justice. We build skills, incubate new ideas, raise awareness, reduce energy consumption, plant trees, and engage citizens in responses to the climate crisis.

This year there are two exciting registration options: Take a 5K Walk wherever you want or go Free Form and celebrate however you like from wherever you are at anytime on the 24th. Simply visit the UofL Sustainability Racing Group page to register, make a donation, or become a fundraiser. If you set up a fundraising page you can share it with friends, family and neighbors in emails, through texts and on social media using your own unique link, or via a Facebook Fundraiser.

Whether you walk, donate, raise funds, or all three, we are excited to have you as part of the 2020 citywide Louisville Earth Walk on October 24th.
