Byline: Submitted by kevin harris

MARION -- With summer right around the corner, the Marion VA Healthcare System is gearing up to support homeless veterans and those at risk of homelessness. The facility will host the 2018 VA2K Walk and Roll event this Wednesday, May 16, between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

VA2K Walk and Roll encourages VA employees, Veterans and community members to step up their fitness level, as well as support homeless veterans by donating goods. The event is free.

A separate kickoff will be held at the Evansville VA Healthcare Center, also on Wednesday. Goods accepted for donation include new household items like bath towels and wash cloths, brooms, new clothing as well as canned food.

"Workplace wellness activities contribute to a more productive and healthy workforce," said Jo- Ann Ginsberg, Director, Marion VA Healthcare System.

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

For additional information, please contact Sieger Giroux, event coordinator, at 618-997-5311, extension 55104 or Maria Buehler, Voluntary Service Officer, at (618) 997-5311, extension 55793.
