Walk will promote PTSD awareness Saturday
The fourth annual N.C. Veterans PTSD Awareness 5K Walk will be at 10 a.m. Saturday.
Walkers will gather at Corriher Lake Wilderness Area, 950 Kimball Road, China Grove, across from South Rowan YMCA.
The walk is sponsored by the Landis American Legion Post 146 for the fourth year.
Registration begins at 9 a.m.
Ninety percent of the donations will go to the Salisbury VA Medical Center PTSD program. Ten percent will go to the American Legion Veteran Service Fund to support volunteers at the VA and veterans’ homes.
PTSD can strike not just veterans but anyone who has experienced a traumatic event such as an accident, abuse, natural disaster or terrorism.
