Actor Patrick Dempsey will be at Fenway Park Friday to evangelize on behalf of a New Hampshire nonprofit that tries to get young people involved in athletics and philanthropy.
Hanover-based Positive Tracks calls its mission “philanthletics,” and the weekend event is dubbed the “Sweat for Good Summit.”
The “Grey’s Anatomy” heartthrob will be part of a roundtable on how to get young people more civically active. He’ll be joined by Allison Bauer of the Boston Foundation, Jessica DeVlieger of C Space, and Josh Kraft of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, with Gioia Perugini of Hemenway & Barnes moderating. —Sacha Pfeifer
