Ashley Peterson '12, a medical biology student, was profiled on for her participation in the upcoming Run to Home Base 9K, an event to honor heroic veterans and help raise funds to provide much needed services to local  veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The race is organized by the new Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base Program. As a combat medic in the Navy for eight months in Iraq, Peterson mended many wounds. While she has avoided some of the stressors that have hit others who returned from active duty, the images and memories will always be there. To cope and clear her head, Peterson has one course of action. "I go for a run," said Peterson.
