This will be our eighth straight year participating as a team in this amazing event! The Home Base Program does amazing work for our veterans who both need and deserve our support, in particular those who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (""PTSD") and/or Traumatic Brain Injury. The Home Base Program provides clinical care, education, research and community outreach for these veterans and their families. The funds that are raised from the run support this important work.
TJ's Team is set up in honor and memory of 2nd Lieutenant TJ McGrath, who was a 1995 graduate of West Point and then completed Ranger Training School While stationed at Fort Hood, TJ was involved in a tragic accident and passed away on November 3, 1996. Our team seeks to do its part to carry on his legacy by helping to provide much needed assistance to his brothers and sisters in the armed services.
TJ's Team has been truly honored to have been the top overall fundraising team each of the past three years - not because of any accolades or honors that go along with this, but because it means that we've made a significant impact in the lives of those heroes who have chosen to serve so that the rest of us can live the lives we want. Over the past seven years, TJ's Team - and all of you who have so generously supported our efforts - has raised $228,200 to help our heroes! TJ's Team is again looking forward to striving for top team honors in 2018, and to flood the race course with TJ's Team shirts and colors. Our veterans deserve no less than our best efforts, and we look forward to doing whatever we can to help them.
If you'd like to join TJ's Team in 2018, we would love to have you. Running ability is not a requirement - the only requirement is a desire to help our veterans and to work as hard as possible for a few months to help raise funds for them. This is a more than fair exchange when considering everything they've sacrificed for the rest of us.

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.
