Vet2Vet of Ulster County will hold their second annual Walk a Mile in My Shoes and you can participate virtually starting Thursday, July 1, 2021 to support those who will walk on Sunday, August 29, 2021 to Monday, August 30, 2021 from Kingston to Albany without sleep.
The walk will cover over 50 miles beginning from the Hudson Valley Nation Center for Veteran Reintegration (HVNCVR) located in Kingston, NY and ending near the New York State Capital located in Albany, NY. The walk will be an estimate of 22 hours. Each continued step and every minute signifies the ongoing battles that veterans face day-to-day.
Participants will be able to virtually join the Veterans who will be walking the 90 km (56 mi) distance on Sunday, August 29th by inputting their progress starting on Thursday, July 1st, 2021. Whether you begin on a trail or at a local gym, they encourage everyone to walk and feel united with our military service members. You can walk 5, 10, or 56 miles and track your progress then share it with friends and family. Your journey will show our large military community that they are supported and someone is ready to walk with them in any struggle they my experience.
Vet2Vet of Ulster County invites everyone to join them on Monday, August 30th within the last 3 miles of the walk when they arrive in Albany. You can follow them on Facebook as they share updates and introduce you to the Veterans walking 56-miles without sleep to bring awareness to the issues and struggles that our military community encounters.
