Suffolk Voice’s Brendan Campbell to Participate in the Run to Home Base
The Red Sox are continuing their annual Run to Home Base fundraiser that supports veterans in their fight against their “invisible” wounds. “Invisible” wounds are ones that are deployment/combat stress induced as well as brain injuries. Through this fundraiser the Red Sox are hoping to build a stronger sense of teamwork between the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital.
This year the Suffolk Voice’s Assistant Sports Editor Brendan Campbell will be participating in the Run to Home Base for his very first time. Though Brendan does not personally know anyone affected by any of the earlier mentioned traumas or other “invisible” brain injuries, his father served 20 years in the Air Force, either on active duty or in the reserves. Brendan views the Run to Home Base as a great way to bring awareness to these issues as well as a way to pay ode to his father
Although Brendan is well on his path to his goal of $2,000 raised, he still needs some help to getting there as he sits at $1,410. Brendan’s goal is to try and get there by May 1st, which is three days away.
