Food and fun fundraiser for special Victoria running club

Every Step Counts benefits from event at Atrium building

Every Step Counts, a running and walking program for people facing challenges of poverty, addictions and mental health issues, will be the beneficiary of an Oct. 4 food and music fundraiser event at the Atrium.

Started in 2009 through a partnership between Victoria Cool Aid Society and the Victoria Foundation, the program currently has about 100 participants who come out at least once a month, and 65 regulars every session.

Food stations at the fundraiser will be supplied by the restaurants and café located in the Atrium, at 800 Yates St. Live music will be by The Fine Grinds, the Capitols and Weak Patrol. Tickets are $35 in advance, available at Victoria Cool Aid Society (coolaid.org), Frontrunners (victoria.frontrunners.ca) and AJ’s Organic Café (ajsorganics.com).
