Hello everyone, and welcome to my fundraising page to support the Red Sox Foundation's 2019 Run to Home Base! This year will mark my second opportunity to run in the 5K race for all the brave soldiers and veterans who have served or are currently serving our country.
July 2018 marked the first time I had ever run a 5K and been rewarded by walking over home plate in Fenway Park. Who has the chance to say that? It was hot, humid, and my legs felt like jelly afterwards, but it was all worth it. I got to hear from and meet some truly inspiring people; I learned about their families, their reasons for running the race, and how they will never stop helping those who fought to protect them. With even more time to prepare myself (and my muscles), I'm looking forward to another exciting 5K at Fenway Park.
Last year, I exceeded my fundraising goal and raised over $1,200! This year, with your help and support, I believe we can go above and beyond my goal of $600 and do it again! All donations, no matter the amount, are appreciated; and if you can't give, show your support!
For Uncle Sonny (Korean War Veteran), Uncle Joey (WWII), and Grandpa Jim (WWII), this race is for you!
