14TH ANNUAL EVENT ON AUGUST 18TH & 19TH

WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon

The 14th annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon presented by Arbella Insurance Foundation will take place on Tuesday, August 18 and Wednesday, August 19, 2015 in support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

The WEEI Sports Radio Network, New England Sports Network, the Boston Red Sox, and the Arbella Insurance Foundation are teaming up with the Jimmy Fund to strike out cancer. 

Over the span of 36 hours and two Boston Red Sox games, this broadcast will feature compelling stories from Dana-Farber patients, doctors, researchers and nurses, celebrity guests and athletes, inspiring people all over the world to contribute to Dana-Farber's lifesaving mission. The biggest news from the event last year came from Curt Schilling, who revealed that he had been diagnosed with mouth cancer, which he blamed on chewing tobacco (audio)

Since 2002, your generous support of this event has raised more than $37 million to support pediatric and adult cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Please tune in on August 18th and 19th to help strike out cancer.
