Red Sox, Jimmy Fund Celebrate 60th Anniversary of Partnership to Strike Out Cancer (Video)

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the wildly successful partnership between the Red Sox and the Jimmy Fund.

The unique union between the sports team and the charity that has been so productive in saving lives, advancing research, providing the best cancer care and raising money serves as the model for all other organizations to follow.

During the past 60 years, the Red Sox and their fans have raised over $105 million for the Jimmy Fund, but the players are quick to point out that both sides reap the benefits in this partnership, as seeing kids battle for their lives really puts life in perspective.

Check out the above video to hear more about the 60th anniversary.
