Champions 4 Her Walk/Run & Festival

Did you know that Kentucky ranks 47th in the United States on all critical measures affecting women and families, such as education, healthcare, & jobs? The Champions 4 Her Walk, Run & Festival was created to raise awareness and to improve the health and financial well-being of women and girls in Louisville. UofL is one of 10 sponsors.

The festival will take place downtown at Waterfront Park on Saturday, June 21. The walk/run begins at 8 AM. The festival will open at 8:30 AM and end at 5 PM.

Included in the festival's events are food, entertainment, games, children’s activities, free health screenings, demonstrations, an awards ceremony, and assorted goodies and giveaways.

Join A Team

If you’d like to participate in the run or walk, you can either join a team or form your own with four or more people. The law school does not yet have a team, but members of our faculty and staff have already joined the Data Divas, League of Champions, Team Project Women, and Women Lawyers Association teams.

You can save $10 if you register by Monday, June 16. The fee will increase to $35 thereafter. Registration includes a t-shirt.


Proceeds from the walk will benefit UofL's Women's Center/PEACC Program and Women's Athletics, along with several other local organizations. Selected beneficiary partners for 2008 focus on: youth mentoring; treatment of severely traumatized children; leadership development for women and girls; prevention of sexual violence and services for its victims; artistic expression for underprivileged girls; the needs of single mothers and their children; and education and competitive athletics for college-aged women. No funds will be distributed to organizations whose primary focus is religion, politics, or reproductive choice.

If you’d like to make a donation, please visit my fundraising page or use one of the forms that I posted in the faculty/staff mailroom and outside my office door.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you!
