On Saturday, July 19, Alysha Norbury of Oak Bluffs, and Leigh Bauer of Edgartown, will support returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families by participating in the 5th annual Run-Walk to Home Base. The event raises funds for the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program. Home Base serves returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and families affected by Post Traumatic Stress and traumatic brain injury through clinical care, community education and research.
The Run-Walk to Home Base starts and ends in historic Fenway Park, with all runners crossing home plate at the finish line. Last year, approximately 3,000 runners and walkers participated, including 500 active duty military participants.
