The Boston Red Sox, WEEI Sports Radio 93.7 FM, NESN (New England Sports Network) and the Jimmy Fund are proud to announce that the 12th annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon raised more than $3.3 million for adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The event has raised more than $34 million since its inception in 2002.

Broadcasting live from Fenway Park on Tuesday, Aug. 27 and Wednesday, Aug. 28, from 6 a.m. to midnight, this year’s WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon featured moving, emotional interviews with Dana-Farber patients about their experience with cancer, and insight from the doctors and nurses who have treated them. The event also included commentary from several Red Sox players, including David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia, Daniel Nava, and 2013 Jimmy Fund co-captains Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Will Middlebrooks. Red Sox President and CEO Larry Lucchino, who is a former Dana-Farber patient, spoke about his treatment and the important relationship between the Red Sox and Jimmy Fund, which is celebrating its historic 60 year partnership - one of the most remarkable partnerships between a team and a charity in the history of professional sports.

Throughout the event, celebrities, including actor and Massachusetts native Michael Chiklis, clothing designer Joseph Abboud, Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, former Red Sox Manager Terry Francona, former Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez, Boston Bruins Owner Jeremy Jacobs and Bruins players Shawn Thornton and Tuukka Rask phoned in or appeared to lend their support on air.

“The outstanding generosity of our listeners across New England year after year not only supports a great cause but betters the lives of those who need it most,” said Jeff Brown, VP/Market Manager at Entercom Boston. “These past two days have been the most emotionally rewarding for the entire WEEI and Entercom Boston family this year. We remain both humbled and thrilled to have played a role in helping the selfless team at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in their fight against cancer.”
