VA2K Walk and Roll
The sixth annual nationwide VA2K Walk & Roll event will occur on May 18, 2016. Last year, more than 23,700 VA employees, Veterans and community members around the country participated, donating money and goods worth more than $325,600 to help homeless Veterans. The annual Walk & Roll, of approximately 1.2 miles, encourages people to get active and to support homeless Veterans with donated food and clothing items.

May 18 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.
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.
