Middlebrooks & Ross Jimmy Fund Co-Captains

Erin Harkins And Middlebrooks
The Jimmy Fund and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute announced that Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks and C David Ross will serve as Co-Captains for the 2014 season. The pair will also be this year's spokespersons for the Jimmy Fund's Ninth Annual Rally Against Cancer Fundraiser. The two players will be ambassadors for the Jimmy Fund, raising awareness and building support for cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Rally Against Cancer, sponsored by Fan Band, encourages Red Sox fans to start a Rally Against Cancer team at their workplaces or schools and encouraging co-workers, classmates, and friends to each contribute $5 or more to the Jimmy Fund. In exchange, they can “Dress for Sox-cess” by wearing Boston Red Sox gear to work or school on Friday, April 4, when the Sox take on the Milwaukee Brewers at Fenway Park for their home opener. The top fundraising workplace and school (K-12, college, or university) are each eligible for a visit from Middlebrooks or Ross. There will be a third and fourth opportunity to win—all teams that raise $5,000 or more (workplace or school) will be entered to win a visit from Middlebrooks or Ross, and the team with the largest number of participants will receive a visit from the 2013 World Series trophy (see full contest rules at RallyAgainstCancer.org). In eight years, Rally Against Cancer has raised more $3.5 million to support the fight against cancer at Dana-Farber. FenwayNation urges our readers to support this great cause.
