The annual Run-Walk to Home Base may be a month away, but NESN’s Jenny Dell and the Red Sox Foundation’s Jack A. Hammond are making sure everything is set for the cause. They stopped by Fenway Park for a walk-through and site survey.
The event, presented by New Balance, will take place Saturday, May 4. It takes runners (and walkers) throughout Boston and culminates with the ultimate finish line — crossing home plate at Fenway Park. America’s Most Beloved Ballpark will also open its gates to friends and family members, encouraging them to cheer on participants in the stands. The Fens will also offer food, entertainment and family fun activities.
The 2013 Run-Walk to Home Base is a 9K fundraising run that raises money for the Red Sox Foundation and the Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program. Proceeds will provide clinical care for veterans with combat stress or traumatic brain injury and support services and counseling for wounded veterans’ families.
