Whether you’re a runner, walker, or simply someone who believes in the mission of ChooseWell Communities, we hope you’ll join us for our inaugural Walk Through the Wild on September 7th at the Louisville Zoo! Join us at the finish line for food, music, activities, and, of course, the zoo. Together, we can continue to ignite solutions & inspire change for families committed to creating THRIVING lives!
The funds raised at the 2019 ChooseWell Walk Through The Wild help young families with histories of addiction maintain sobriety to raise their babies and toddlers in safe, healthy, drug-free homes. Participants and donors are contributing to lifesaving resources, like access to safe housing and a loving drug-free community to give babies and toddlers a chance at a drug-free future.
As a Walk Sponsor, your organization will be actively supporting the vision that every Louisville family with a child under age three THRIVES in a home free from parental substance misuse.
To register for the walk, visit Choose-Well.org/Walk and click “Registration.” You’ll have options to register as an individual, create a new team, or register as a member of a pre-existing team.
Our website requires that each person registering must have an email address. Unfortunately, we’re not able to register multiple people at once. Make sure to log out each time you register before attempting to register someone else afterwards.
If you are interested in volunteering, contact Kim Mascaro at [email protected] The more the merrier. We encourage all volunteers to register and fundraise.
Never fear! Anyone who is interested may register during check-in the day of the walk. And although registration is closed, you may still donate.
No. Because this is a fundraiser, we strongly suggest that you continue your fundraising efforts after paying the registration fee, which helps to cover zoo entrance, t-shirt and venue costs for the event
Our suggested minimum amount is $100. You can set your own fundraising goal, too!
ChooseWell Communities accepts cash, credit card, and check donations. We also accept in-kind donations such as gift cards and products that can be used as prizes for participants. If you are a local business owner and would like to contribute to the walk with an in-kind donation, please email [email protected]
Please mail with the attached donation form to ChooseWell Communities, Inc., 226 N 17th Street, Louisville, KY 40203. Each donation needs a separate form, this allows ChooseWell to credit your team for the donation and also to personally thank the donor.
Teams are a great way to participate in the ChooseWell Walk. It’s much more fun to participate and fundraise for a walk with your family, friends, and colleagues! You can even make it into a friendly competition to see who can raise the most money! It’s also a great inclusive way to introduce those in your life to ChooseWell who may not otherwise be familiar with the cause.
Anyone is welcome! There is no limit on the number of teammates you can have or how much you can fundraise.
Of course! Although everyone who registers will receive an official t-shirt, we encourage teams to get creative and make their own t-shirts if they wish to do so. Other ideas to show your team spirit include decorating headbands and canvas sneakers, and decking out your child’s stroller!
