Do you want to exercise and see the city all while raising money for a good cause?
This September, join the Threshold Housing Society as they fundraise to open doors for youth and prevent adult homelessness, with their exciting ‘Do the Loop’ event!
The society, which has been operating for over 30 years, serves at-risk youth experiencing homelessness, aging out of care, or fleeing violence in the home by providing safe housing, community, and support to help youth make healthy choices and shift towards a brighter future.
From September 18th to 26th, grab your running shoes, jump on your bike, or assemble a team of friends, and circle the City of Victoria’s unique 25km border.
Participants are encouraged to fundraise $25 for 25km – all event proceeds will go directly towards the Threshold Housing Society.
The event is also designed to provide opportunities for all members of the community to participate in a variety of ways including the official 25km route along Victoria’s scenic border, the 25k Capital Bike-sponsored safe cycling route or any 25km route of their own creation.
Every participant will get a customized fundraising page where they can ask friends, family or the community for donations.
Everyone is welcome!
“There is a housing crisis in the region and our local community association wanted to giveback to those facing homelessness by supporting the important work of the Threshold Housing Society, who operates two homes in South Jubilee,” said Matt Dell, Event Organizer and President of the South Jubilee Neighbourhood Association.
“We want this event to be fun and bring people together from across the region while raising funds and awareness for Threshold and celebrating our amazing City.“
“Threshold Housing Society provides a critical service by offering housing to at-risk youth who are at risk of homelessness. With their unique approach, Threshold offers real long-term solutions and plays a vital role in supporting youth in our community. I encourage everyone who likes to run, bike, or commute by any means, to “Do The Loop” around Victoria.”
