Jimmy Fund Radio Telethon Raises Nearly $4,000,000

Thanks to the efforts of thousands of people across Red Sox Nation, the 2017 WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon raised $3,937,229 to help strike out cancer. The funds were raised over just a two-day period. Since 2002, this event alone has raised more than $49,000,000. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute helps so many people—people like the adorable Hannah Wertens. Hannah bravely gave a stirring rendition of "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch at Fenway on Tuesday night. She electrified the crowd—and rightly so. Please give all you can to this incredibly worthy cause known as the Jimmy Fund—championed by the Red Sox and their fans since 1953. You can contribute HERE.
