Run To Home Base Helps Fund Healing Of Invisible Wounds Of War (Video)

2,692

Since 2009, the Boston Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program have been helping raise money and support for the invisible wounds of war: post-traumatic stress disorder.

One of the big ways they raise funds is with the Run to Home Base.

Participants run (or walk) a loop around Boston, and the finish line is home plate at Fenway Park. Teams and runners fundraise, but more importantly, they show their support for the healing process that is needed by so many veterans. One-third of returning military suffer from some form of PTSD, traumatic brain injury or depression.

Learn more about the program and the Run to Home Base in the video above.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
