VA2K Walk and Roll
VA employees, Veterans and community members around the country put on their walking shoes and joined the fifth nationwide VA2K event on May 20, 2015. The annual Walk and Roll of approximately 1.2 miles encourages people to step up their fitness level and to support homeless Veterans with donated food and clothing items.
This year, more than 23,700 people participated at 211 VA locations, donating money and goods worth more than $325,600 to help homeless Veterans.
Jump-start your fitness routine
May 20 coincides with National Employee Health and Fitness Day. VA’s employee wellness program, called WIN (Wellness is Now), inspires VA staff and Veterans to live healthier lifestyles and reduce preventable injuries and illnesses.
Veterans, check out VA's Move program for help managing your weight and improving your health.
Why walk? Walking strengthens your cardiovascular system, tones muscles, increases flexibility and can help shed pounds and reduce stress. Even a moderate amount of exercise daily can improve your health.
