You don't have to actually participate in the annual Walk-Run to Home Base event to fully appreciate how special it is. That's why everyone is encouraged to come out and enjoy the day.
The event, which benefits veterans and their families, has helped many members of the U.S. armed forces cope with post-traumatic stress disorder. It's also become a perfect event for making friends and enjoying the Fenway Park atmosphere, which is an added bonus to helping out a good cause.
NESN.com's Jennifer Stafford caught up with some members of the U.S. military and others participating in Sunday's event to see what it means to them.
