To Tim Wakefield From The Jimmy Fund

I just received this from the Jimmy Fund and I wanted you to see it...

**The Jimmy Fund congratulates Tim Wakefield on Roberto Clemente Award**

"The Jimmy Fund has known for many years that Tim Wakefield truly embodies the essence of the Roberto Clemente Award.
As a pitcher, Tim is a fierce competitor and a proven winner, but his contributions off the field are far more impressive.
We have been fortunate to be the recipient of Tim's support, and in 2010 we honored Tim for his commitment, naming him a Jimmy Fund co-captain.
Whether visiting with our teen patients during their Red Sox Spring Training trip or bringing the World Series trophy to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Tim has the ability to connect with patients of all ages. His kindness and compassion are truly genuine.
We congratulate Tim on this award!
Suzanne Fountain
Director of the Jimmy Fund."

Thank you Suzanne and congratulations to our "old man," Tim Wakefield, a hero in so many ways. We love you Timmy. See you next year on the mound at Fenway Park.
