MVPLA and American Legion 24th District Hike and Bbq

MVP's mission is to match up combat veterans and former professional athletes together -- after the uniform comes off -- to give them a new team to tackle the transition together. MVP shows them they are NOT alone.

It’s that time that we bring our friends, family and loved ones all together to share an amazing day out with Merging Vets and Players. Please use the following link to reserve your free plate of food from Bastards Canteen.

Where: Inspiration Point Trail at Will Rogers State Historic Park (The loop to Inspiration Point is 2.25 miles long with 325 feet of elevation gain. The gradual hike delivers far reaching views from Santa Monica Bay to downtown LA). 
After the hike we’ll all head over to American Legion Pacific Palisades Post 283 for food, socializing, and fun. Address listed below.

**Since it is a State Park, there may be a $12 parking fee if you choose to park in the parking lot, there is very limited parking on the street. As a veteran you may go to Big 5 and get a day pass to park at the state parks. Only certain Big 5’s do it. You can also visit the California State Park website and sign up for a lifetime free pass if you are over 50% disability. 

Why: We want to get all of the friends, family, supporters and anyone that may be interested in learning more about MVP and/or the American Legion together.
