VA2K Walk and Roll and Tailgate to Support Homeless Veterans

            The Amarillo VA Health Care System will host a VA2K Walk and Roll and Tailgate on May 18, at 11:00 am to encourage healthy activity while supporting homeless Veterans with donations.  The VA2K Walk and Roll is free and open to the general public.  Community partners such as Sitel, The Pavilion, American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Texas Veterans Commission, Ussery-Roan and Downtown Women's Center will be tailgating with food for purchase.  All proceeds go to homeless Veterans.  Pre-registration is not required. 

            The Amarillo VA event is just one of approximately 170 VA2K events taking place May 18 at other VA facilities across the country.  In conjunction with the event, the Amarillo VA is accepting donations to be used to carry out existing VA programs for homeless Veterans.  However, there is no requirement for a donation in order to participate.

The event is open to people of all fitness levels and can be done over a lunch break. Whether you team up with a coworker, a friend, or participate on your own, there's no better time than now to step up your fitness level and help improve the lives of homeless Veterans.

For additional information and more event details, please contact Patrick Hutchison at 806-355-9703 extension 4059 or via email at Patrick.hutchison@va.gov.
