VA Black Hills “VA2K Walk and Roll” Event Benefits Homeless Veterans and Promotes Wellness
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Black Hills Health Care System hosted a 2K walk and roll event on June 2, 2011 at the Fort Meade and Hot Springs VA Medical Centers to benefit homeless Veterans and support health and wellness.
The VA Black Hills Health Care System event was just one of many 2Ks that took place on June 2nd at other VA facilities across the country. Employees, Veterans, volunteers and the public who participated in the event were asked to donate three cans of food for homeless Veterans.
What a success for the 1st annual VA 2K at VA Black Hills Health Care System! There were 79 participants at Hot Springs VAMC and 76 participants at Fort Meade VAMC. Canned goods valued at approximately $750.00 were collected between the two campuses and were provided to homeless Veterans. Thank you all for coming out and donating to a good cause and enjoying a healthy event too!
