Muhammad Ali Center and Metro United Way to Partner on “Greatest Give Back,” Day of Service in Honor of Ali’s 78th Birthday


Volunteers for The Greatest Give Back can register at

WHAT: Each year, in honor of Muhammad Ali’s birthday on January 17th, the Ali Center’s staff, Council of Students, and volunteers engage in acts of service inspired by Muhammad’s famous quote, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” This year, the Ali Center is proud to continue and expand upon this tradition by teaming up with Metro United Way for The Greatest Give Back.

The Greatest Give Back will include three different service projects throughout the day with each requiring a two-hour shift. Because January 17th would have been Ali’s 78th birthday, each service project will have a theme surrounding the number 78.

Through this day of service, volunteers can help improve the lives of others in our community, keep Muhammad’s humanitarian legacy at the forefront, and demonstrate that Louisville truly is a compassionate city.
