We are excited to invite you to join the LBA Health & Wellness Committee for a meaningful event - the "Out of the Darkness: Suicide Prevention Louisville Walk" on November 4th at the beautiful Waterfront Park, Louisville, KY.

Event Details:

  • Date: November 4th

  • Check-in Time: 9:00 a.m.

  • Walk Start Time: 10:00 a.m.

The LBA Health & Wellness Committee is committed to fostering well-being within our legal community. With this in mind, we have set a fundraising goal of $1,000 for the Out of the Darkness Walk, and we need your support to achieve it.

Why is this walk important?

Lawyers, like many other professionals, are not immune to mental health challenges. According to the American Psychological Association and other studies, depression is one of the most common triggers for suicide, and lawyers are 3.6 times more likely to suffer from depression compared to non-lawyers.

By participating in this walk, donating, sharing, or simply showing your support, you can profoundly impact raising awareness about suicide prevention and mental health in our legal community.

Here's how you can get involved:

Walk With Us: Join our team and walk alongside fellow LBA members to show solidarity in the fight against suicide.

Donate: Contribute to our fundraising goal and help us make a difference in the lives of those affected by suicide.

Order a T-Shirt or SweatshirtOrdering through our link helps raise funds and awareness for the walk. All orders will start shipping on October 17th.

Share: Spread the word about this event among your colleagues, friends, and family to increase awareness and participation.

Together, we can significantly impact suicide prevention and support the well-being of our legal community.

Let's walk together, advocate for mental health, and show that we care.

Join us on November 4th at Waterfront Park. Together, we can be the light "Out of the Darkness."
