Audacy radio stations helped raise over $3.8 million for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through the 19th annual “WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon.” This year’s event brought the fundraising total to over $62 million since the radio-telethon’s inception. The radio-telethon was started by WEEI, The Jimmy Fund and the Boston Red Sox in 2002. “We’re completely inspired to see the New England community from so many different walks of life come together to support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s selfless mission,” said Tim Clarke, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Audacy Boston. “The annual ‘Jimmy Fund’ event is synonymous with this region and, in a year where we’ve faced adversity unlike any other, being able to unite with our audience to help strike out cancer is a true testament to our resiliency.”
