Boston Red Sox
Since 1953, the Boston Red Sox and the Jimmy Fund have had the longest and most successful team-charity relationship in all of professional sports to help hit a home run against cancer.
From Boston Braves owner Lou Perini to Red Sox owners Tom and Jean Yawkey to current Red Sox owners John Henry, Larry Lucchino and Tom Werner, the Boston Red Sox have helped raise millions of dollars to help Dana-Farber make unprecedented strides in cancer research and care.
As a corporate partner, the Red Sox have supported the Jimmy Fund through its support of events and initiatives including the WEEI/NESN Radio-Telethon at Fenway Park, John Hancock Fenway Fantasy Day, Jimmy Fund Co-Captains, Red Sox/Jimmy Fund License Plate, the Jimmy Fund Chorus, and visits from players past and present to the Jimmy Fund Clinic. The WEEI/NESN Radio-Telethon alone, held annually at Fenway Park, has raised more than $34 million to support research and care for both patients and adults at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
In the words of Larry Lucchino, current Red Sox president and CEO, as well as a former patient at Dana-Farber, "The Red Sox are a part of the fabric of this city and the Jimmy Fund is an inseparable part of the Red Sox."
