Join the U.S.VETS Phoenix team as we host our second annual STEPS FOR VETS a 10K/5K/1Mile run/walk on Saturday, May 13th, 2017 at Rose Mofford Sports Complex.

Whether you are a competitive runner looking for a new PR on this fast, flat course, or you are ready to run your first 5K, or just looking for a fun, family activity on a beautiful Saturday morning, all ages and ability levels are welcome!
