Along with The MENTOR Network–of which NeuroRestorative is a partner–we were proud to sponsor the 2013 Run-Walk to Home Base this past Saturday, May 4th. Established by the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital, the 9K run or 2.5 mile walk supports Veterans returning from service in Afghanistan and Iraq with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder, and their families.
“As an organization that serves Veterans and Military Service Members through our post-acute brain injury programs, we are honored to have been able to further that commitment by sponsoring the Run to Home Base for the third year in a row,” said Bill Duffy, COO for NeuroRestorative.
Proceeds from the event support the Home Base Program which provides funding for clinical care for Veterans and family outreach, as well as research and education for healthcare providers and the community. Employees from NeuroRestorative and The Network participated in the race which kicked-off outside historic Fenway Park and concluded when runners and walkers crossed home plate in front of the Green Monster at Fenway.
