On Wednesday, May 16, the Department of Veterans Affairs put on its second nationwide 2K event. The VA2K encourages VA employees and Veterans to step up their fitness and support homeless Veterans. Eliminating homelessness is one of VA’s major goals. In 2011, these events had more than 16,000 employee participants at 150 VA facilities, with donated goods totaling about $172,000 in value. Some 170 locations participated this year. The numbers are being tallied, but VA’s hopes to top its 2011 record.
