A six-week walking group for women veterans will begin at noon Aug. 13 at the Roseburg VA Medical Center Building 2 Women's Lobby, 913 NW Garden Valley Blvd., Roseburg.

The walks will continue once a week, rain or shine, on Tuesdays through Sept. 17.

The group is open to women veterans of all walking speed levels, and participants are encouraged to wear red for heart health and pink for breast cancer awareness.
