The 2020 VA2K Walk & Roll event, previously scheduled for May 20, has been postponed. A new date has not yet been identified.

The annual VA2K Walk & Roll is a walk of approximately 1.2 miles that encourages people to live active lifestyles.  It also allows participants to support homeless Veterans through voluntary donations of food and clothing items.  

In 2019 more than 31,800 VA employees, Veterans and community members from around the country participated in the VA2K Walk & Roll, donating goods with an estimated value of more than $367,300 to help homeless Veterans.

Jump-start your fitness routine

The annual VA2K Walk & Roll event coincides with National Employee Health and Fitness Day. The Employee Whole Health Program 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.
