This year you will have the opportunity and the option to raise funds for the Heuser Hearing & Language Academy and for Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Kentuckiana when you register online for the Dr. Ed Morgan/Kiwanis Grand Slam 4-Miler.  All of the proceeds from our Run/Walk are split evenly between these two fine organizations and this new fundraising option now gives participants an opportunity to raise additional funds for the charity of your choice.  As an incentive to use this fundraising process we have decided to refund the registration fee for all participants who raise a minimum of $250 via this option.

The race is named in honor of Dr. Edgar Morgan. Dr. Morgan was a dedicated Kiwanis member and long-time advocate for the Louisville running community.

The Kiwanis Club of Louisville is a snapshot of the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro community. We have members from all walks of life and at every step of the career ladder. However we are unified in our belief that our community, our children and our own professional life will benefit from developing relationships with other local leaders.
