BOSTON, Mass. (June 12, 2014) – Sports Radio WEEI 93.7 FM and NESN are proud to announce that the 13th annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon presented by Arbella Insurance Foundation will take place at Fenway Park on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 19 and 20, from 6 a.m. to midnight. The emotional two-day event has become one of the Jimmy Fund’s biggest annual fundraisers. Since beginning in 2002, the event has raised more than $34 million for pediatric and adult patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
The 36-hour Radio-Telethon will broadcast live from Fenway Park on Sports Radio WEEI 93.7 FM and NESN and feature compelling patient stories, interviews with Dana-Farber researchers, doctors and staff, and calls and visits from celebrity guests and members of the Boston Red Sox.
During both nights of this summer’s Radio-Telethon, the Red Sox will play the Los Angeles Angels at Fenway Park at 7:10 p.m. Dana-Farber pediatric and adult patients will attend the games and take part in special pre-game ceremonies and on-field activities.
