WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon

Jimmy Fund

Thank you to everyone who made a gift during this year's WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon! As a result of your incredible generosity, we were able to raise $3,343,189 for cancer research.

Dennis & Callahan got Day 2 started with the inspirational stories of Brendan Horton, Fernando Morales, Sean Bennett and Cody Ray. They also talked to Monica Vinasco, whose son Jose passed away in December, and Red Sox legend and cancer survivor Bill Monbouquette.

Mut & Merloni brought us the stories of Brennan Burnett, Mary Bondarek, Zachary Hare (who was on with Lyndon Byers), Jack Robinson (who was on with Pedro Martinez) and Brandon McCarthy. Other guests included Jason Varitek, Terry Francona, Jake Peavy and Michael Chiklis.

Salk & Holley continued the steady stream of emotional stories with Ian Price (pictured left with Pedro), Lia Scagnoli, Allison Schablein, Emily Ziegler, Christina Dangold and Tara Daniels, among others. The guys also talked to Tim Wakefield, John Farrell, Jonny Gomes, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Tom Werner, Larry Lucchino and Bud Selig. They ended the afternoon with a special visit from the siblings of the late MIT police officer Sean Collier.

During Wednesday's Red Sox broadcast, Joe Castiglione and Dave O'Brien talked to patients Jayden Dalton and Theresa Doyle Harmon, as well as Red Sox owner John Henry.
