Rainy Weather Doesn't Stop Annual VA Charity Walk
Hospital hallways are not the place where you find power walkers.
But Wednesday's rainy weather forced one annual charity walk to switch to plan B.
More than 100 veterans and supporters took part in the annual VA2K.
Walkers followed a route that led them through the hallways of the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center.
Even though they moved indoors, participants said it was still a good workout.
This is just one of the many VA2Ks around the country organized by the Department of Veteran Affairs.
The event is designed to benefit homeless veterans.
Organizers collected nearly two dozen boxes filled with donated items, including shoes, clothing, toiletry items, and food.
The items will be taken to The Honor Center, a facility that provides support for homeless veterans.
