$350.00 OF $550.00 GOAL

Touchstone Farm, through a collaborative partnership with Home Base, provides a wonderful respite weekend to service members and their guests. 

I had the honor last year to be at the farm on many of the respite weekends thanks to my daughter, who spends most of her Saturdays at the farm vaulting, working in the barn and riding.  I could see the connections these service members were making with each other, their guest and of course the animals.  I was so taken with the work the staff and volunteers were doing, not only did I run the 9k Run to Home Base last year,  I went through training to become a volunteer on the respite weekends at the farm myself.  This year, I get to experience first hand the truly amazing experiences these service members and guest have at the farm.  From hiking with the small animals, quilting, vaulting, riding or simply sitting by the fire in the lodge, enjoying some farm fresh cooking, there is no other place on Earth like Touchstone.  This partnership is an ideal match!  I am proud to contribute to the continued financial success of Home Base and supporting the respite weekends at the farm as a volunteer.  It really is magic!  I humbly request your consideration in donating to the cause and sponsoring my second Run to Home Base.

With my most sincere thanks,


Help support our veterans by donating to my “Run to Home Base presented by New Balance“ race entry.

The 2018 RUN TO HOME BASE presented by New Balance is a unique and special event that celebrates our Military Heroes and raises necessary funds for Home Base, a partnership of the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital. The mission of Home Base is to heal the invisible wounds for Post-9/11 Veterans, Service Members and their Families, but we need your support.

Your support of Home Base will help to ensure that Veterans who served our country receive the clinical treatment they need and that their Families get the guidance and support they need.

Their Mission Is Complete. Ours Has Just Begun.
