Funds Raised for U.S. Veterans Suffering Mental Trauma and Brain Injury
Lexington, MA, July 28, 2015 – For the 6th straight year, Daymark employees supported “Run to Home Base” an event committed to helping veterans suffering from mental trauma and brain injuries. This year’s event took place on July 25th.
The annual event, dedicated to healing the “invisible wounds of war,” consists of a 9k route through the streets of Boston with the finish line at home plate in historic Fenway Park. All funds are donated to New England veterans and their families affected by combat stress and traumatic brain injury. Over 2000 people participated in this year’s event, which raised over $1.5 million, and this year, ‘Team Daymark’ was 22 members strong.
"I am sure those who had the chance to meet some of the veterans who were there on Saturday, and listen to the keynote from a returning veteran, understand why this is such an important and impactful cause. It is so easy to get caught up in our own little worlds and forget about those that have given so much for our freedom and opportunity here in the USA," said Brian Casey, General Manager and COO at Daymark. “Each year our commitment and fundraising increases. To date, our team has raised over $50,000 for this worthy cause thanks to the generosity of our employees, friends, suppliers and partners.” Anyone wishing to donate can do by visiting the Team Daymark Donation Page.
