5th Annual Team Jack Radiothon raises nearly $90,000

LINCOLN, Neb. – On September 14 generous citizens from across the state came together to raise nearly $90,000 for pediatric brain cancer research. The 5th Annual Team Jack Radiothon presented by The Home Agency was held in Lincoln at the University of Nebraska Student Union.    

Radio partners including: KSID, KLIN of Lincoln, News Channel Nebraska of Norfolk, WOW FM of Lincoln, KBRX in O’Neill, along with over 20 other radio stations across the state broadcasted the program. The Home Agency not only sponsored the event but answered phones and sold Team Jack apparel.

Home Agency President Jim Baldonado said, “It gives our family as well as all our staff that helped with the Radiothon great pleasure knowing with the money raised on that day will help in the long run. We listen to all the kids talking on the radio about their illness and you ask yourself, why does it have to be that way? Well, maybe someday it won't.”

Among the program highlights were over 35 local families impacted by pediatric brain cancer who shared their journey and experience with listeners. Actor and comedian, Larry the Cable Guy stopped by for a live interview and donated $5,000 from the Git?R?Done Foundation. Other celebrities were interviewed such as New England Patriot, Rex Burkhead, Renowned Sportscaster, Dick Vitale, Hall of Fame quarterback, Jim Kelly, Washington Redskin, Spencer Long, and many more.

Over the past five years, this event has raised over $300,000 for pediatric brain cancer research. This event isn’t possible without the support of individuals across the state. Visit www.TeamJackFoundation.org for more details on the event.
