Now in its 6th year, Honor Walk, presented by AZ Veterans Project, is an annual event to recognize more than 670,000 Arizonans who have served our country in the military. AZ Veterans Project helps veterans go “Green to Blue” by providing professional networking, mentoring and career services. AZ Veterans Project serves men and women from every generation and every branch of the service.
In previous years, portions of the proceeds from the Honor Walk have been donated to Soldiers R U.S., a local group that sends much needed supplies to military personnel deployed abroad, Bootstrap USA, a veteran-founded program developed to assist veterans dealing with combat stress, USVets, a workforce development program for homeless veterans and MANA House, the Madison Street Veterans Association transitional housing facility for men and women. These organizations work with veterans in Arizona to provide much needed services. AZ Veterans Project is a charitable 501(c)(3) organization. All donations and contributions are tax deductible.

Also, for our live entertainment we are please to announce that People Who Could Fly will also be joining us again this year.People Who Could Fly is an indie pop band based in Phoenix, AZ, drawing influence from acts such as New Politics, Imagine Dragons, Walk the Moon, and The 1975. They formed in 2013 and have been hard at work making a name for themselves in the music industry. Front man James Mills joined the band after receiving a Facebook message from the group looking for a lead singer. The 4 instrumentalists are college students at ASU and GCU, while James holds a bachelor’s degree from U of A.
