JVS has entered a team in the United Way of Greater Los Angeles HomeWalk 2012, a 5K walk/run to end homelessness. The event takes place Nov. 17 in Exposition Park. The team, called JVS 4 Vets, has already enrolled 24 team members and raised more than $1,600. If we pass $2,000, JVS gets a featured booth at the event.
"We just received an update that we're the #2 top fundraising team and the #2 top recruiting team," said Jessica Cheng, Program Coordinator for JVS Veterans First.
L.A. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will once again serve as the event's honorary chair and featured guests will include actors Jon Huertas from “Castle” and Mark Valley from “Body of Proof.”
