Each year, the Jimmy Fund teams up with the Boston Red Sox, WEEI Sports Radio Network, and New England Sports Network (NESN) to strike out cancer in children and adults. The 12th annual event took place Tuesday, Aug. 27 and Wednesday, Aug. 28 on WEEI (93.7FM) and NESN.

Over the span of two days and two Red Sox games, the broadcast featured compelling stories from Dana-Farber patients, doctors, researchers, nurses, celebrity guests, and athletes, inspiring people all over the world to support Dana-Farber’s lifesaving mission. This year's event raised more than $3.4 million.

Past guests have included Mo Vaughn, John Valentin, Tim Wakefield, Clay Buchholz, Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia, Jason Varitek, Adrian Gonzalez, David Ortiz, Keegan Bradley, and more.
