VA2K Walk & Roll coming in May to promote healthy lifestyles

April 27, 2022
LEBANON, Pa. – VA’s 12th annual VA2K Walk & Roll event is back with goals of moving the body in
support of your whole health and well-being, while also helping homeless Veterans. The event is
scheduled for May 18, 2022, at the Lebanon VAMC starting at 11 a.m.
The community is invited to participate in the VA2K event which includes a short two-kilometer walk (1.24
miles). The event is free, and it is suggested that participants be at the front of building 1, near the Whole
Health Tent, 15 minutes prior to the start.
To help area homeless Veterans, participants are encouraged to bring a voluntary donation such as
clothing, toiletries, packaged food or bottled water. These donations will be collected and distributed to
local homeless Veterans. Donations are not required in order to participate.
Since 2011, more than $2.7 million in donations of these type have been raised nationally to help
homeless Veterans.
“By offering participants a way to help homeless Veterans while also promoting whole health and moving
the body, the VA2K Walk & Roll is a positive event for both the community and VA,” said Robert W.
Callahan, Medical Center Director.
Community groups who are interested in participating in the event should contact the local VA2K
coordinator, Michelle Ayers at 717-272-6621 x 5596 or via email at
