Homeless veterans need us right now, more than ever, so rather than cancel the walk, we are taking it virtual. . . with a twist! We are inviting the nation to join us for a virtual walk to end veteran homelessness on November 11, 2020. Those who are called to help homeless veterans are able to register and participate in individual or small group walks.

10 individuals, representing our various collaborative partners, including homeless veterans, the VA, Veterans groups, etc. will walk the mile on our live virtual stream. Every 1/10th of a mile, each individual will take turns describing their role and passion for the overall mission of moving every veteran into a home for the brave in the land of the free.

How to Participate

By registering, you can show your commitment to walking a mile with us virtually by November 11, 2020. We encourage you to walk in your neighborhood, local park/walking trail, or anywhere you can walk safely and socially distanced. You will also have the option to receive a 2020 Veterans Matter Virtual Walk t-shirt.

After registering for the walk, you will have the option to Join/Create a Walk Team. This is where you can encourage your friends and family to join your walk team (socially distanced of course) and/or donate in support of your walk efforts.

Registration Details: $30, plus optional 2020 Veterans Matter Virtual Walk t-shirt (add $8 for shipping).

You can register by visiting the 2020 Walk webpage (veteransmatter.org/walk) or texting VetWalk to 71777. Click here for Step-by-Step Registration Instructions.

Tune in to our live stream on Veteran’s Day and join the Veterans Matter team and collaborative partners in our Walk to End Veteran Homelessness. By registering or donating, you will receive an emailed live-stream link on the day of the walk. You can also visit our Facebook page at 5:30 p.m. EST on November 11 to view the live stream.
