CVS Health, Boston Red Sox honor military veterans at Fenway Park
WOONSOCKET, R.I. — CVS Health and the Boston Red Sox teamed up on July 3 to celebrate Independence Day early this year by providing military veterans of all abilities from across New England with an opportunity to hone their batting skills on the field at Fenway Park and participate in a day of activities.
Through the CVS Health Baseball Camp for Veterans, the veterans stepped up to the plate to receive tips from Boston Red Sox hitting coach Chili Davis and assistant hitting coach Victor Rodriguez. They were also provided exclusive access to the historic ballpark during a VIP tour, and received tickets to the evening’s game against the Houston Astros, courtesy of CVS Health, in the CVS/pharmacy Family seating section. The camp was hosted by CVS Health as an extension of the company’s commitment to our nation’s military heroes of all abilities.
The veterans who participated in the event were invited by CVS Health through the United States Department of Veterans Affairs New England Adaptive Sports Program. The program operates through the VA Boston Healthcare System.
“What better way to kick off Independence Day celebrations than by bringing this extraordinary group of veterans together here at Fenway Park,” stated Eileen Howard Boone, SVP of corporate social responsibility and philanthropy at CVS Health. “This is our fifth year partnering with the Boston Red Sox, and it’s an honor to be amongst these remarkable men and women once again.”
“We can’t thank CVS Health enough for making this experience possible for the past five years,” added Krista Geden, recreation therapist for the VA Boston Healthcare System “Our veterans always look forward to this experience, especially since many of them are lifelong Red Sox fans. Getting to practice hitting with the Boston Red Sox Hitting Staff, and spending time together at this historic ballpark is a dream come true for them.”
Over the years, CVS Health has provided charitable support to a range of veteran-focused initiatives. The company has supported military and veteran-focused organizations, including the National Guard, Fisher House, Operation Military Embrace and the USO. The company has also established a colleague resource group for veterans – called Valor – within CVS Health, and has hosted a series of football skills camps and golf clinics for veterans.
