BOSTON RED SOX RUN TO HOME BASE - VETERANS SUPPORT EVENT
Greetings and thank you for visiting my ever growing website..
To date I have various Veterans Memorials photographed in 112 Massachusetts towns, I hope to add many more this year. as part of my Love and Respect for our Veterans, Past and Present, I have joined the Boston Red Sox Run to Home Base Program with my employer: Technical Communications Corporation in Concord Massachusetts.
The "Virtual" event date for 2021 is September 25 and the runners and walkers will chose their own path this year.
This event which is sponsored by the Boston Red Sox in cooperation with Massachusetts General Hospital , raises money for Veterans recovering from PTSD and suffering from "Invisible Wounds of War" . Help is also offered to families struggling to help their loved ones or cope with the loss of a family member. Initially, this program which is of no cost to the Veterans was created for Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan , it has since expanded to all Veterans of Active duty, including Korea and Vietnam. I will continue photographing the Veterans Memorials in Massachusetts to preserve the memory of our Soldiers who have sacrificed for our Freedom.
I am participating in the Boston Red Sox Run to Home Base event to raise money for veterans with PTSD.
The event typically takes place at Fenway Park and Boston and we walk or run around Boston, ending up at Home Plate at Fenway Park. The program raises money to support the Red Sox Foundation in cooperation with Massachusetts General Hospital, which has a program to help Veterans and their families cope with PTSD. This "Proven" program has been in operation for the past 10 years and has saved many lives.
Due to COVID-19, the event at Fenway Park has been cancelled and we are asked to walk or run at a place of our choice on September 25th.
My intention is to walk from the New Hampshire State House in Concord, New Hampshire to the Veterans Home in Tilton New Hampshire. The walk/run around Boston is 5K or 3.1 miles, I will be walking 19 miles, going the "Extra, Extra Mile" for our Veterans.
