Jimmy Fund presented with $3.3M check at Fenway Park


BOSTON ( – It's an end of summer tradition that does so much for kids and adults with cancer.

The Jimmy Fund was presented with a check for $3.3 million Thursday night at Fenway Park from the Boston Red Sox, WEEI Sports Radio 93.7 FM, and NESN as part of the 12th annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon – a 36-hour live broadcast coming from the famed baseball park.

The $3.3 million will go towards adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

The event has raised more than $34 million since its inception in 2002.
