February 28th, 2015 marks the continuation of the popular VetFit Run & Walk program with veterans at the Veteran's Transition Center (VTC) of Monterey. With support from Mizuno Running and other local and regional partners, Fleet Feet Monterey brings the program to the veterans at no cost with coaching, running gear and educational clinics.
The mission of the Veterans Transition Center is to provide services for Monterey County's homeless veterans and their families. By providing veterans with traditional housing, emergency services and case management programs, veterans will once again become employable, productive members of the community. VTC does not simply offer short term solutions to homelessness, it strives to better the lives of homeless veterans and aims to give them the tools they need to help themselves.
Support and donations for the VetFit program can be made through the Adopt An Athlete Program with Fleet Feet Sports.
