Every Step Counts, the inclusive walking and running program, is holding The Fall Session, a culinary and musical fundraiser at the Atrium with a silent and live auction.


Every Step Counts has helped 495 people since February 2009. Inclusive and powerful, Every Step Counts, founded by the Victoria Foundation and operated by Cool Aid, has played a vital part in the health, happiness and success of many men and women who experience challenges with mental health, addictions, poverty, social isolation and other barriers.

Through the simple power of belonging and getting some exercise and good food in their lives, participants harness the strength to move forward in their lives to pursue what success means to them; be it school, meaningful relationships, employment, weight loss or just a renewed sense of self.

The Fall Sessionwill delight in food from Canoe Brewpub, Zambri’s, Pig and AJ’s Organics, and coffee will be served by Habit. The musical talent features Big Mike and the Riffriders (“unconventional songs, break-ups, trains and Jesus by the farm team”), Fritz Schulze (improvisational blues with hints of Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, The Beatles and Steelers Wheel) and Coastal Giant (funky dance groove). This is a dry event. There is also a silent and live auction.


Silent Auction Highlights include: aweek's accommodation in Burgundy, France donated by Grape Rentals (!), a Stormtech jacket of your choice, $300 in gift cards to Fiamo and $300 from Fifth Street Grill, a Frontrunners running package, a locally designed and made retro bathingsuit from Paradise Cove and many more.

Every Step Counts sponsors for 2013 include: Canoe Brewpub, Frontrunners, The Jawl Foundation, Victoria Foundation and Victoria Cool Aid Society.
