This year marks the 10 year anniversary of losing my dear friend and Army Specialist, Kevin Slein. In Kevin's honor and to support all veterans, active service members and their families, I will be running the Run to Home Base 9k. I have always wanted to participate in this race and raise money for this important organization and this year feels like the best time to take the leap and do it. Kevin was a decorated combat medic who served in both Afghanistan and Iraq. When he returned home he suffered from PTSD, as unfortunately many of our service men and women do. I want to run this race to help those like Kevin get the assistance they need in order to thrive.
People say that running is the time when they do their best thinking - I'm one of those people. And I often find, when I need some inspiration to keep going, that I think of Kevin. For those of you who never had the pleasure to meet him, Kevin was one of those people who just made you happier when he was around. He also had this ability to know when you needed him the most. And so on my runs where I'm struggling to keep going, I know he's there with me and pushing me along, just like he used to cheer for me at volleyball and softball games. Kevin holds a special place in my life and will forever be in my heart.
Thank you in advance for contributing to my fundraising effort and for supporting me as I train to run this race and cross home plate at Fenway Park.
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.
