There are more than 100 walkers signed up to walk, 25 vendors featuring local foods and handcrafted items, and 9 nonprofit community outreach representatives all coming together to make this a great event.

We are dedicated to preventing Veteran Suicide, through the power of self-empowerment workshops, 10 Challenges to Services, mentorship programs, and training in ASIST - Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training, more information will be available at our booth.

The "Walk for a Veteran" Walk-a-thon is not only about taking steps but also about making a lasting impact. As part of our commitment to this cause, we're introducing a Peer-to-Peer fundraising challenge. Participants are encouraged to fundraise, special prizes awarded.
