About this Event

American Legion Post 233 Elk Grove is hosting The American Legion Walk for Veterans on May 27, 2019 (Memorial Day). The purpose of this free community awareness walk of 1.8 miles is to (1) raise awareness in the Elk Grove community about veterans and The American Legion's positive impact on communities nationwide, (2) bring attention to the many great services The American Legion provides (e.g., advocacy for veterans benefits, job fairs, family support through Temporary Financial Assistance), and (3) bring attention to veterans who served their country and paid the ultimate sacrifice.All participants will be required to sign a Release and Waiver of Liability form available online at www.elkgrovepost233.com. Participants under 18 years of age will be required to have their parent/legal guardian consent to their participation by signing the release form. The completed and signed form should either be scanned and emailed to www.elkgrovepost233.com by May 26 or provided at the time of check-in on May 27 prior to the start of the walk.

The American Legion Walk For Veterans have been taking place throughout the United States in response to a call put out by The American Legion National Commander Brett P. Reistad . While this is a free community awareness event, any donations received will be provided to the The American Legion's National Emergency Fund (NEF). The fund provides immediate monetary assistance to American Legion Family members and posts nationwide, which can be used for immediate needs such as food, hotel, clothes, and other necessities wiped out by disaster. A full 100% of donations to NEF are turned into grants and are not used to cover administrative or promotional costs.

Donations can be made by selecting the Green ticket option button at the top right of the page. Each person donating $10.00 or more will receive a Walk For Veterans T-shirt while supplies last. T-shirts will be issued before the walk begins at the cemetery.
