The Fargo VA will host its annual VA2K Walk & Roll on May 19 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Healing Garden at the Fargo VA Medical Center.

The free VA2K is a two-kilometer walk or wheelchair roll (approximately 1.2 miles), for Veterans, VA employees, and community members to help support homeless Veterans and active lifestyles.

Meet at the Fargo VA’s Healing Garden for the opening ceremony at 11 a.m., or come any time between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. and take the course at your own pace. No pre-registration is required.

Participants are encouraged to bring donations to support local homeless Veterans, but donations are not required. Fargo VA staff will be on hand to provide assistance to anyone needing help along the route and to help push wheelchairs. In the case of inclement weather, the walk will be cancelled, but donations can be dropped off in the north parking lot of the Fargo VA - signs directing where to drop donations off will be posted.
