WEEI Sports Radio 93.7 FM and NESN are proud to team up again for the 11th annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon taking place at Fenway Park on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 21 and 22, from 6 a.m. to midnight.
This always emotional 36-hour event has become one of the Jimmy Fund’s biggest annual fundraisers. Since beginning in 2002, the event has raised nearly $28 million. Broadcasting live from Fenway Park on WEEI 93.7 FM Sports Radio and NESN, the Telethon 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 host the Los Angeles Angels at Fenway Park with first pitch at 7:10 p.m. Dana-Farber pediatric and adult patients will attend the games as part of the event.
