How to get involved?
On Wednesday, May 18, we are asking VA employees, Veterans, community partners and our greater Southeastern North Carolina community to join is for a 1.24 miles (approximately 2,625 steps) stroll or roll. It’s free and no registration is required!
According to the National Institute of Health, walking is the most popular physical activity among adults, and it’s easy to see why. It requires no special clothes or equipment, and it’s free. Regular walking can have many health benefits. It may lower your risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. It can strengthen your bones and muscles. It may help you maintain a healthy weight. It might also help lift your mood.
There are parks and trails throughout our 19-county Southeastern North Carolina area. Great places to get in our 1.24 miles for VA2k. Visit the sites below to learn more about places to walk, stroll and roll while enjoying the beauty of North Carolina.
