Event Details

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 August 18 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 2018 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.

This vision is vital to Louisville’s future. Research affirms that children living in safe, healthy, and socially connected home environments realize more favorable outcomes in physical and social/emotional health and learning readiness than their peers whose lives have been challenged by the early childhood adversity that accompanies a parent’s substance misuse.

Gifts received from the 2018 Walk Through the Wild will help ChooseWell expand programming in the following areas:

  • Housing Security
  • Employment Readiness
  • Healthy Lifestyle Programs
  • Family Reunification Support
  • Family Emergency Funding

Thank you for your support,

Stephanie Barnett, Co-Founder and Acting Director
