Boston event raises over $2m for veterans
On Sunday morning, Kathy Pittman visited Fenway Park for the first time - but she wasn’t there to see a baseball game. Pittman, 51, of Attleboro was there for her son - an Iraq and Afghanistan war veteran. She was one of thousands of people at the third Run-Walk to Home Base, a 5.6 mile run to benefit the Home Base Program which provides clinical care and support services to veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and their families. The Home Base Program was launched by the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital in 2009.
