Derek and I are once again participating Red Sox Foundation Run to Home Base on July 27th. This year is also the 10 year anniversary for this event. It was such an incredibly moving experience last year we wanted to run in it again. Let's hope the heat and humidity are not as extreme as last year!!
And we are honored to form a team in the name of The Silhouette Project this year; Run 4 Them! Linda Lajoie founded The Silhouette Project, committed to raising awareness about suicide since her 26-year-old son Dustin, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, took his own life in December 2014.
Linda states her mission is to educate other families about what to look for before a tragedy happens. Talking about the struggles our veterans face in returning home after their duty and urging veterans that may be struggling to reach out for the help they need and deserve.
Last year Linda was a guest speaker at the Run to Home Base event for the Gold Star Families.
We are excited to have Renee, Jonathan, Ashlee and Aiden join The Silhouette Project, Run 4 Them team!!
