HELP OUR HEROES HEAL.
The time to help Veterans, Service Members, and their families is now.
As the recent events in Afghanistan continue to evolve and escalate, many of our nation’s brave service members, veterans, and families are hurting. Home Base stands ready to serve them, and we need your support to help our heroes heal.
Home Base’s services are needed now more than ever.

The Run to Home Base presented by Raytheon Technologies is a unique 9K run and 5K run/walkthrough scenic Boston ending with a once-in-a-lifetime experience of finishing the race by crossing Fenway’s famed home plate.

2021 Run to Home Base
The Run to Home Base is our most critical, annual fundraiser providing vital funds for the clinical care and support for our Veterans and their Families who are impacted by the invisible wounds of war. We’ve seen a 25% increase in Veteran suicides during the COVID pandemic. Like many people and organizations over this past year, Home Base suffered financially, and we need your help now more than ever. Our revenue goal for this year’s event is $1.5 million. Your support will help ensure we can continue to deliver our care nationally, to include Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) programs for our Special Operations Community, our intensive clinical program for families who have lost their loved one due to service or suicide, and our regional outpatient care, which now serves even more Massachusetts Veterans and their families via Telehealth. Thanks to our generous sponsors this year, 100% of every dollar raised will go directly towards the life-saving care provided by Home Base.
