Jay Fund Radiothon

The 15th annual Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Radiothon, held on 1010XL on Nov. 30, raised a record-breaking $249,784.

“I’m truly amazed at the generosity of the 1010 XL listeners in times when a carton of eggs costs $6,” said 1010XL General Manager Steven Griffin, “and equally amazed how the hosts, producers, radio staff and Jay Fund volunteers came together with a singular focus to, year-after-year, produce these results in only one broadcast day.”

Since it launched in 2008, the Radiothon has raised more than $1.5 million for the Jay Fund.

The Jay Fund provides financial, emotional and practical support to families tackling childhood cancer, and the money raised helps First Coast families pay their bills and put food on the table, so they can focus on caring for their sick child.

During the challenging economic times of 2022, the Jay Fund has seen a 65% increase in requests for help with emergency household expenses compared to last year.

“Helping families tackling childhood cancer is more important now than ever,” said Keli Coughlin, CEO of the Jay Fund.
