About the Run to Home Base presented by Raytheon Technologies
The Run to Home Base is our most critical, annual fundraiser providing vital funds for the clinical care and support for our Veterans and their Families who are impacted by the invisible wounds of war. We’ve seen a 25% increase in Veteran suicides during the COVID pandemic. Like many people and organizations over the past two years, Home Base suffered financially, and we need your help now more than ever. Our revenue goal for this year’s event is $2.5 million. Your support will help ensure we can continue to deliver our care nationally. Thanks to our generous sponsors, 100% of every dollar raised will go directly towards the life-saving care provided by Home Base.
