VA2K Walk and Roll to Support Homeless Veterans and Promote Physical Activity

The G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center will host a VA2K Walk and Roll on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, to encourage healthy activity while supporting homeless Veterans with donated items. Walk times are from 7 – 9 a.m.; 12 – 2 p.m.; and 3 – 5 p.m. The VA2K Walk and Roll is free and open to the general public. Local family physician, Dr. Timothy Quinn, will serve as Honorary Chairman during the 12 p.m. walk.

Pre-registration is not required and those interested in participating should plan to arrive at the medical center under the portico no later than 15 minutes prior to event start time.

The event is just one of approximately 170 VA2K events taking place May 15 at VA facilities across the country. In conjunction with the event, Voluntary Services will inform participants of VA’s willingness to accept gifts and the medical center’s need for in-kind gifts to be used to carry out existing VA programs for homeless Veterans. However, there is no requirement for a donation in order to participate.

The event is open to people of all fitness levels and can be done over a lunch break. Whether you team up with a coworker, a friend, or participate on your own, there’s no better time than now to step up your fitness level and help improve the lives of homeless Veterans. For additional information and more event details, please contact the local VA2K coordinator, Donald Breckenridge at (601) 362-4471, extension 55031or via email at donald.breckenridge@va.gov.
