AZ Veterans Lead has announced that Grand Canyon University has accepted the title sponsorship for the "2012 Honor Walk," which honors Arizona's 660,000 military veterans and raises money for local veterans' organizations. The walk will take place on Sunday, Feb. 26 on the campus of Grand Canyon University, 3300 W. Camelback Road.

The Honor Walk is an untimed 5K fun walk open to anyone who wants to honor the memory of a specific military veteran, all the veterans in their family, or just veterans in general. Advance registration is $35 and is available online at In its inaugural year, the fundraising fun walk will raise funds for "Soldiers R Us," a nonprofit that sends care packages of badly needed and much appreciated supplies to Arizona's men and women deployed around the world.

Colin Day, co-founder of AZ Veterans Lead, is a former U.S. Army combat engineer, gunner, squad leader and Iraq war veteran. He says Grand Canyon University's sponsorship will help other returning vets adjust to civilian life.
