Arpin Group employee raises US$5,000 for veterans’ charity

Sep 17, 2017
Mark Dearborn, Vice President of Corporate Accounts at Arpin Group, raised US$5,000 for the Boston-based veterans’ charity fundraiser event, Run to Home Base, held on 15 July at Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox baseball team.

He was also honoured as a top ten individual fundraiser and an all-star fundraiser.

Mark has been participating in Run to Home Base since 2014 and has personally raised US$13,000 for the charity. He ran the 9-kilometre course in 43 minutes, a personal best.

Home Base is a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital programme, dedicated to healing the invisible wounds for veterans, service members and their families through world-class clinical care, wellness, education and research.

“I began running many years ago because I wanted to become healthier and more active,” said Mark. “When I learned of this event that incorporated my love of running with a cause I felt so strongly about, I knew I had to participate. We have many worthy causes out there, but this to me is one that really needs our support. The first year I took part in this event, I was hooked and vowed that I would participate in Run to Home Base as long as I was physically able. It is a top-notch event and you see first-hand where the funds you raise are going.”

Since its inception, Home Base has served more than 11,000 veterans and family members with care and support, trained more than 45,000 clinicians, educators and community members nationally and remains at the forefront of discovering new treatments to ensure a brighter future for service personnel and their families.
