United Way of Northeastern Minnesota's United for Veterans Program is proud to present the Veterans Wellness Passport to improve overall wellbeing while building community for veterans and service members in northeastern Minnesota!
Here's how it works:
1. Sign up for the UWNEMN Veterans Wellness Passport to receive a passport number and quarterly updates on activities, speakers, and gatherings. You can use your passport number to sign up for future events without entering all your information each time.
All active duty, veterans, and members of the National Guard and Reserve of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and experience levels welcome.
Activities will include yoga, snowshoeing, fishing, and more. Necessary equipment will be provided.
2. Attend as many or as few passport events as you'd like. Activities will require a free registration.
3. Get moving, connect with local service members, and explore activities across our region.
All Passport holders will receive a Veterans Wellness Passport backpack and wellness items when they attend their first activity.
