Jimmy Fallon to attend Telethon

UPDATE: Finding conflicting reports….some websites are reporting Jimmy Kimmel and not Jimmy Fallon. I guess we will soon see!

This week the 8th annual WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio Telethon will be happening at Fenway Park. It will kick off at 6 AM on Thursday and will feature an array of amazing stories and features of those brave folks who are battling now or have fought cancer.

It will run each day from 6 AM to midnight, and a number of celebrities will be on hand to lend their support to the cause, such as Denis Leary, Lenny Clarke and Jimmy Fallon. This year the target is to raise $5 million. (An eBay auction just concluded yesterday that included with a number of cool items that included throwing out the first pitch at Fenway with Mr. Leary and Mr. Clarke.) All proceeds from the Radio Telethon benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

It will be jointly broadcast by both NESN and WEEI. Red Sox Nation has always been extremely generous with the Sox’ charity, and hopefully this will be the biggest Radio Telethon ever.
