Victoria marathon helps out charities

Along with enjoying a good run, the GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon includes a charity pledge program.

This year 20 charities will be participating in the charity pledge program. The charities raise awareness and money by encouraging people to run or walk for their individual causes, and by collecting pledges.

The 33 Annual GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon takes place Oct. 7. In addition to the marathon, there is a half-marathon, 8K road race and Thrifty Foods kids run and marathon. For more details, visit  runvictoriamarathon.com.
