The Run to Home Base presented by Raytheon Technologies returns to Fenway Park in 2023

Registration is now open for the 14th edition on Saturday, July 22, 2023

BOSTON, MA – On Saturday, July 22, 2023, at historic Fenway Park, Home Base and the Red Sox Foundation will host the 14th Annual Run to Home Base to raise funds for lifechanging, lifesaving care for Veterans, Service Members and their Families. Raytheon Technologies will return as the presenting sponsor of the event.

Discounted “early bird” registration is now open for the 9K run and 5K run-walk. Participants will experience crossing home plate at America’s Most Beloved Ballpark while supporting the extensive range of critical care Home Base provides to the Military community. There are also virtual registration options for those who are unable to attend in person.

The Run to Home Base increases awareness and financial support for Home Base, a partnership between Massachusetts General Hospital and the Red Sox Foundation, and its mission to heal the invisible wounds of war. To date, nearly $28 million has been raised for Home Base through this annual event. Yet, the need for additional funding has never been higher.

According to the 2022 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Annual Report by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), more than 125,000 Veterans from all combat eras have died by suicide in the U.S. since 2001. However, there is reason to believe the situation is even more dire. According to data collected in America’s Warrior Partnership recent study, Operation Deep Dive, the suicide rate reported by the VA between 2014-18 could be 37% higher. Furthermore, Wounded Warrior Project found that nearly 1 in 4 Warriors had suicidal thoughts in the past 12 months and mental health continues to be a critical concern for post-9/11 wounded Warriors in its 2021 Annual Warrior Survey.

“Since our inception, Home Base continues to see the lifesaving results of our programs,” said Home Base Executive Director Brigadier General (Ret.) Jack Hammond. “This annual event directly supports the world-class care we provide to Warriors and their Families. Your support, as members of our Grateful Nation, guarantees that this care is provided to these brave men and women AT NO COST! The Run to Home Base quite literally saves lives, and I strongly encourage all to join us and our wonderful partners at the Red Sox Foundation on Saturday, July 22, 2023.”
