The Walla Walla Veterans Affairs Medical Center plans a VA2K Walk + Roll event May 20 at the VA’s parade grounds. Anyone can participate.
Participants check in from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in front of Building 86 and then start the 1.2-mile walk. The walk includes “get fit” stations featuring Jazzercise, Tai Chi and yoga.
Dogs will be available for adoption at other stations set up by the VA, Blue Mountain Action Council and Blue Mountain Humane Society.
Prize drawings are planned for people who complete the walk, and event T-shirts will be available for $10.
VA facilities nationwide are hosting similar events Wednesday to promote wellness and help homeless veterans. Donations are welcome. Suggested items include cleaning supplies, phone cards, sleeping bags, backpacks and shaving cream.
Call Linda Wondra at 509-525-5200, ext. 26520, for more information.
