ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Veterans Outreach Center is holding its annual Pound the Ground 5K walk and run on Wednesday, August 23.

It will be held in person at Mendon Ponds Park, as well as virtually — kicking off at 6 p.m. Those participating in the virtual event can submit their results online starting August 16 through August 30.  The 5K raises money for Veterans Outreach Centers support services for local veterans.
