I am very proud to be participating in Run to Home Base for a second year. Last year, it was amazing to see how many people turned out for the event but more importantly, I realized how many veterans need our help. Approximatley 11-20% of veterans who served in Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom have PTSD in a given year. Many of them are hesitant to reach out for help. We need to make it easier and more accessible for veterans and their families to access the care they need. In 2018, Run to Home Base opened a National Center of Excellence in Charlestown- doubling the amount of patients they serve. The little donations really do add up. Please donate and support the people who have supported us for so long!
