The Friends of Jack Foundation, started four years ago by Jill Fearons of Mattapoisett, has raised $1 million since 2015. The foundation is committed to helping sick kids who are hospitalized on the SouthCoast.

Jill Fearons joined Jim Phillips this week on Townsquare Sunday to discuss the amazing success of the foundation, how the money raised is being spent, and why the "Tutu Challenge" is gaining traction throughout the region.
