The John Kincade Show, a morning sports talk show on Philadelphia radio station 97.5 FM The Fanatic, selected the AACR to be its official charity through December 2021. John has a special connection to the AACR’s mission. As a two-time cancer survivor, John understands the importance of raising funds to help speed up cancer research progress.

“I love that our show has a featured charity, especially one like the American Association for Cancer Research. First of all, it’s a cause that I can speak about passionately. My goal is to deliver a message of hope and encouragement to cancer patients and their families,” said John. “The AACR is an international organization headquartered right here in Philadelphia, which is a great source of Philly pride.”

To support the AACR’s mission to prevent and cure all cancers, the John Kincade Show is committed to raising awareness and funds for cancer research through a variety of initiatives. A mentorship and experience auction held in June raised nearly $10,000 to benefit the AACR’s lifesaving work. Additionally, the AACR is grateful for the donations received through the partnership of the following companies: Adam Mechanical, Davis CPA Group, Farryn Electric, Peirce-Phelps, Bryant Heating and Cooling, and Window Nation.

“The Fanatic’s partnership with the AACR has enabled us to rally around an important cause that has touched the lives of so many,” said John. “We are so proud to have the AACR as the official charity of the John Kincade Show, and we are beyond grateful to our listeners and clients who have joined and continue to join our efforts to raise awareness and funds to support cancer research and save lives.”

You can listen to the John Kincade Show every weekday from 6 a.m.-10 a.m. Eastern time on 97.5 FM The Fanatic.
