VA2K Walk & Roll Coming in May to promote healthy lifestyles

VA’s 11th annual VA2K Walk & Roll event is back with the goal of moving the body in support of your whole health and well-being, while also helping homeless Veterans. The event is scheduled for May 19, 2021, at the VA Northern Indiana Health Care System starting at 10.a.m. The community is invited to participate in the VA2K event which includes a short two-kilometer walk (1.24 miles). The event is free, and it is suggested that participants be at the start line 15 minutes prior to the start.

Starting/sign-in locations for each site:

  • Fort Wayne Campus-Gazebo
  • Marion Campus- Atrium/bldg. 172
  • Peru CBOC-River Walkway
  • St Joseph County CBOC

To help area homeless Veterans, participants are encouraged to bring a voluntary donation. These donations will be collected and distributed to local homeless Veterans. Donations are not required to participate. Since 2011, more than $2.7 million in donations of these type have been raised nationally to help homeless Veterans.

Community groups who are interested in participating in the event should contact the local VA2K coordinator, Tamara Files via email at Tamara.Files@va.gov
