The Boston Red Sox and the Jimmy Fund go back a long way.

The team first partnered with the Jimmy Fund in 1953, and 62 years later, the relationship between the two Boston mainstays is as strong as ever. From Ted Williams to David Ortiz, Red Sox players have been committed to connecting with patients at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and doing whatever they can to help the cause.

NESN color commentator Jerry Remy was one of those players, and he recently joined Tom Caron to discuss the special connection the team has with the Jimmy Fund. Check it out in the video above.

The 2015 WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon runs Tuesday through Wednesday, and benefits the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. You can donate and learn more here, or call toll free to donate at 877-738-1234.
