The Fenway Park Run Walk to Home Base fund raiser event was held this weekend and I was part of the event team photographers (barphoto was also there).

The Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program serves New England by identifying, motivating, and clinically treating wounded service members and veterans with combat stress and traumatic brain injury and their families. The Home Base Program serves the nation as a model for private-public collaborations as an educational resource about the invisible wounds of war that now effect an estimated 30 percent of those who served or are serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. We are also working on the development of new treatments for post-traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Great fun, on a beautiful day. Started early with a presentation beginning at 7:15 and then at 8:15 the first wave took off. They start outside the park on Yawkey Way, proceed through Boston (2.5k walk/9k run) and they finish right in front of the Green Monster. They then continue along the warning track and get their picture taken on home plate.

Especially meaningful given the Boston Marathon tragedy....

Love the ground-level photo of the Green Monster! It's much taller than it looks on TV.
