Every Step Counts is a unique running and walking program conceived by the Victoria Foundation in 2009 and hosted by the Victoria Cool Aid Society’s REES Program. It was designed for people who self identify as experiencing barriers relating to mental health, addictions, social isolation and other related issues.
It is positive and unique, drawing on the wide-reaching and long lasting benefits of exercising and team work to foster self-esteem, confidence, energy and healthy lifestyle choices
one step at a time.
We meet twice a week at the Downtown Community Centre at 755 Pandora Ave. We go out for a run/walk, a stretch, and enjoy a delicious healthy snack.
Participants earn rewards, participate in community events such as the Times Colonist 10km race & the Good Life Marathon, learn from sport and wellness professionals about various topics such as correct running form, and healthy eating!
