Even if you can't participate in Sunday's Run to Home Base, there's still a way for you to help out.
Anyone can watch for free from the field box seats and the grandstands in support of the 2,000 runners on May 23. Supporters, who will enjoy family fun activities in the big concourse of Fenway Park, must enter at Gate B only, which will open beginning at 6 a.m.
Activities in the concourse will include abbreviated tours, pictures with Wally and pictures with Boston's two World Series trophies.
The race begins at 8 a.m., and runners are expected to return to Fenway between 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.
The Run to Home Base benefits the Red Sox Foundation and the Mass General Hospital Home Base Program for local servicemen and women returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with combat stress disorders.
Anyone planning to attend can RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
