You can show your support for the Red Sox on Opening Day by participating in the Jimmy Fund’s Rally Against Cancer℠. Red Sox fans can partner with their school or company to take part in the fundraiser.  With a gift of $5 or more, fans can wear their favorite Red Sox gear to work or school on Monday, April 8 as Boston takes on the Baltimore Orioles in its home opener. The school and business that raises the most money by April 8 at 3 p.m. will win a visit from Jimmy Fund Co-Captains Will Middlebrooks and Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Companies, colleges, universities and K-12 schools are eligible for the fundraiser. The winner has to be within a two-hour driving distance of Boston. “It’s a fun way for different schools and professional organizations to come together to rally for the Red Sox and also for the Jimmy Fund at the same time,” Dana-Farber Senior Media Specialist Teresa Herbert said. The contest has raised over $3 million the past seven years. This year’s goal is to raise over $550,000. So far, 141 teams have registered for this year’s fundraiser. “On behalf of all patients, families and staff at Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund, we applaud all of our supporters and sincerely thank all of our Rally Against Cancer participants,” assistant director of corporate partnerships at Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund, Katie McGuirk said. Middlebrooks and Saltalamacchia will be ambassadors for the Jimmy Fund all season. They will be raising awareness and building support for the cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as well as lending their support to Jimmy Fund events, visiting adult and pediatric clinics, thanking donors and more. Past Rally Against Cancer spokesplayers include Daniel Bard, Tim Wakefield, Clay Buchholz, Jon Lester, Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis and Trot Nixon. For more information, or to register, visit RallyAgainstCancer.org.
