We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Walk for Charity Before the Weather Turns



Winter is coming, but there may be a weekend or two left to break a sweat for a good cause. This weekend, you can support a walk to raise awareness for hearing loss or to support families interested in adopting children.---

Two great charity runs are happening this Saturday, Oct. 13.  The Shadow Mountain Church in West Jordan is hosting a 5k run and 1-mile walk to help raise money for Life Song, a fund to help ease the financial burden of families seeking adoption. The event features a breakfast sponsored by Rubadue’s Saucy Skillet that costs $5 a person. Registration for the 5k is $25 a person, and the 1-mile fun run is $10 a person.

Check it out at the South Jordan East Pavilion, 10991 S. Riverfront Parkway, South Jordan, Oct. 13. Registration is at 7:30 a.m., race at 8:30 a.m. You can find more event details at Shadow Mountain’s website.

Also Saturday, the Walk 4 Hearing is going on in Sugar House Park, where you can help the Hearing Loss Association of America raise awareness of a condition afflicting roughly 36 million Americans.

Check it out at Sugar House Park, 2100 S. 1300 East; registration is at 9 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m. For more info on the walk, contact event organizers at 801-556-2241
