Get your sneakers and sweats ready, because Alexandria nonprofit ALIVE! is hosting its 41st annual StepALIVE! Walkathon in Old Town on Sunday, October 16.
There are already 33 walking teams assembled, including Team Shiba, for this year’s five-mile charity walk.
The fundraising goal is $80,000, and $32,000 has already been raised.
Proceeds will support ALIVE!’s family assistance program, which helps Alexandria families pay for rent and other bills.
The event starts and finishes at First Christian Church (2723 King Street), and begins at 1:15 p.m. with on-site registration and a T-shirt pickup. The walk itself starts at 2 p.m., and is followed by a celebration from 3:30 to 4:40 p.m.
It costs $25 for individual walkers to participate ($30 at the event), $10 for seniors and children ages six to 13, and free for kids under six.
Thank you to the sponsors of the 41st Annual StepALIVE! Walkathon! Your donations help to ensure that ALIVE! has the resources to support our Alexandria neighbors in need with food, shelter, emergency financial assistance, and eviction prevention.
