VA2K Walk and Roll
The annual VA2K Walk & Roll is a walk of approximately 1.2 miles that encourages people to get active. It also allows participants to support homeless Veterans through voluntary donations of food and clothing items. The sixth annual VA2K Walk & Roll event was held on May 18, 2016. More than 24,700 VA employees, Veterans and community members from around the country participated, donating money and goods worth more than $384,800 to help homeless Veterans.

The annual VA2K Walk & Roll event coincides with National Employee Health and Fitness Day. VA’s employee wellness program, called VA WIN (Wellness is Now), inspires VA staff and Veterans to live healthier lifestyles and reduce preventable injuries and illnesses.

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.
