Today and tomorrow (August 14 & 15) WEEI, NESN, and the Red Sox are trying to raise $4 million for the Jimmy Fund. For those of you who are unaware of what the Jimmy Fund is, it is a cause setup to support children and adults with their battle against cancer. The Jimmy Fund and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute do an amazing job of providing hope to the thousands of people diagnosed with this disease each year.

If you are looking for one place to donate money to this year, please consider the Jummy Fund. Over the next 2 days, WEEI is hosting a telethon to raise the $4 million. Listen to their broadcast for 5 minutes and I guarantee you will agree that this is an amazing program. I’m not affiliated with the any of the involved parties and my family has been fortunate enough to not have to deal with cancer for the past few years. However, as a devoted Boston sports fan, I’m always tuned into WEEI’s great sports radio broadcast and the days in August where they interrupt the normal sports radio routine to raise money for this great cause, are best days to listen all year. You can not help but be brought to tears and be inspired by the stories you’ll hear.

Update: It looks like the goal was exceeded…unofficial total is $4.6+ million…awesome!!!
