[ARCHIVED] VA2K Walk and Roll in Des Moines - May 18, 2016

It's time for the 6th Annual VA2K Walk and Roll! This nationwide event encourages community health and wellness while also supporting homeless Veterans with donated food and clothing items.

Join VA staff, Veterans, and other community members on May 18, from 10 am to 2 pm, at the VA Central Iowa Health Care System Des Moines Campus, located at 3600 30th St. There is no entry fee for this event, and the 2 kilometer course is located on the Des Moines campus. Your registration may be completed before you begin that day.

Since 2010, the annual event has helped generate more than 1.34 million dollars worth of donated items to support homeless Veterans. If you would like to contribute, items that are especially needed are non-perishable food items, cleaning, men's underwear (new/all sizes), can openers, and all coffee supplies.

Please join us for this fun, healthy event!
