ALEXANDRIA, VA – ALIVE! is dedicated to helping people and families in need in Alexandria. On Sunday, Oct. 16, the StepALIVE! walkathon returns for the 41st year. The event helps raise funding to provide food, shelter, and financial assistance.
This year’s goal is $80,000.
In a Sept. 27 email, the nonprofit’s executive director Jennifer Ayers wrote, “Each year, StepALIVE! is an opportunity for everyone in our city to take action and raise awareness for the work required to help our neighbors in need.”
Each month, ALIVE! helps almost 4,000 families with food assistance – for free.
