BOSTON, MA - The Red Sox Foundation, with Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, announced today the release of a co-branded charity plate design commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Jimmy Fund and the lasting partnership between the two organizations.

“The Red Sox Foundation and the Jimmy Fund have had a tremendous impact on the lives of countless individuals and families affected by cancer across Massachusetts and greater New England,” said Governor Maura Healey. “This charity license plate is a fitting tribute to the 75th anniversary of the Jimmy Fund and the enduring collaboration between these two remarkable organizations. I encourage the people of Massachusetts to proudly display these plates, knowing that their support will make a real difference in the lives of those facing the challenges of cancer.”

Since 1953, the Boston Red Sox and Jimmy Fund have been a team, working in support of cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The enduring partnership has helped to raise over $162 million for the Jimmy Fund’s lifesaving work through the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon, Red Sox Foundation’s sponsorship of the Pan-Mass Challenge, and other fundraising and awareness campaigns. Red Sox pitcher Garrett Whitlock currently serves as the Jimmy Fund Captain, building awareness and support for the Jimmy Fund’s mission. 

“As we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Jimmy Fund, we are thrilled to continue our longstanding partnership with the Jimmy Fund and strengthen our unwavering commitment to our community,” said Bekah Salwasser, EVP, Social Impact & Executive Director, Red Sox Foundation. “This co-branded charity license plate serves as a powerful symbol of unity and hope, reflecting the many years of collaboration between the Red Sox Foundation and one of our core partners, the Jimmy Fund. Together, we will make an even greater impact in supporting cancer patients and their families and building a community of support.” 

“The Boston Red Sox/Jimmy Fund license plates are an easy way to make a meaningful impact in the fight against cancer,” said Larry Lucchino, Chairman of the Jimmy Fund, Trustee of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Chairman/Principal Owner of the Worcester Red Sox, and President/CEO Emeritus of the Boston Red Sox. “Red Sox Nation has this special opportunity to show support from the road, all while helping raise critical funds for the Jimmy Fund and the Red Sox Foundation.”
