Tune in Thursday, 19 August and Friday, 20 August on WEEI Sports Radio Network and New England Sports Network for the ninth annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon. Cheer on the Boston Red Sox as they take on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Thursday and the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday and help strike out cancer. Listen to or watch the broadcast between 6:00 AM and midnight on both Thursday and Friday.
Striking out cancer
The 36-hour broadcast will feature compelling stories and celebrity guests, as well as emotional ceremonies prior to both Red Sox games during the two-day period. The lineup is packed with interviews with Dana-Farber patients, doctors, researchers and nurses. There will also be special ceremonies with celebrities at both Red Sox games.
Last year’s event raised $4.5 million, with gifts coming in from every state in the country. This year we’re looking for Red Sox and Jimmy Fund fans outside of New England to host Radio-Telethon viewing parties as part of our 50 State Challenge. Since 2002, your generous support of this event has raised more than $21 million to support research and care for both children and adults at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. With your help, we can reach our goal of raising $5 million this year.
