Veterans Emergency Transition Services Canada is hosting the Coast to Coast Tour of Duty in Kelowna next month.

The Tour of Duty is a national walk promoting awareness and dialogue about veteran homelessness and to locate veterans in need across the country. It is held in 21 cities across Canada at 1 p.m. local time.

“We don’t wait for those in crisis to come to us,” said Jim Lowther, VETS Canada co-founder and chief executive officer. “Our volunteers literally hit the streets, boots on the ground, in their local communities in search of veterans who need our help.”

Anyone interested in participating in the walk on June 9 is asked to email
