CROSS FENWAY'S HOME PLATE TO SUPPORT OUR WOUNDED VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES
On Saturday, May 4th, several thousand runners and walkers will have the thrill of crossing home plate at Fenway Park while supporting wounded veterans and their families. The 2013 Run-Walk to Home Base Presented by New Balance is a 9K (5.6 mile) Run and a 3-mile Walk to benefit the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program.
Participants will help provide much needed clinical care for veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with combat stress or traumatic brain injury -- wounds that effect an estimated 30% of the brave men and women who served our nation. The Run is a unique, fun event that also supports services and counseling for veterans' families, research to improve diagnosis and treatment and community education.
Registered Runners and Walkers begin at historic Fenway Park and wind their way through scenic Boston and with a timed finish at the Green Monster and a photo finish at Fenway's famous home plate. The Run-Walk to Home Base is a wonderful opportunity to show your support of our deserving veterans. And friends and family are invited to Fenway to cheer you on and enjoy terrific family activities. While Runners must be 14 and older, families of all ages may participate in the Walk.
Advance registration is required. "They served us. Now we can serve them." Please visit www.runtohomebase.org today.
