By  | 

SALEM, Va. (WDBJ7) Veterans and hospital staff laced up their tennis shoes and participated in the VA2K walk and roll event. The walk is to help shed light on homeless veterans.

Three bicycles were given away to veterans that have transportation barriers. Chef T cooked up a big meal of ribs and chicken for military men and women. "This is not something they have every day," said Chef T. "I'm not an accountant, not a banker, I can not provide them homes. Everyone has to eat. I hope I can touch a little bit of their soul. It means so much to me to be here."

Staff also shared healthcare and fitness information.
