Fifth Annual Run to Home Base Supports Veterans’ Services




The fifth annual Run to Home Base, presented by New Balance, will take place at Fenway Park on July 19. The fundraising run, created by the Red Sox Foundation, supports services for veterans of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Since 2010, Run to Home Base participants and sponsors have raised more than $9 million to support efforts to help these veterans with such issues as post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury through clinical care, education and research.

“With American troops on the ground in every corner of the world, it is critically important that we remember and do everything we can to help these brave service men and women and their families,” says Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner. “With New Balance’s support, this wonderful fundraiser serves as a community-wide opportunity to thank these courageous warriors for everything they have done, and continue to do, for our country.”

The fundraising minimum for adult walkers is $250 and all participants must be at least 14 years old. Younger children can walk if accompanied by a full fundraising adult and raise a minimum of $125. All donations towards runners are tax deductible and benefit the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program. Checks can be sent to the Red Sox Foundation/Home Base Program, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston, MA 02215.
