Stand Up To Cancer Telethon Raised Over $100 Million for Charity


Gwyneth Paltrow’s star-studded Stand Up To Cancer telethon on Friday raised a whopping $109 million for charity.

The actress, who served as show producer, gathered celebrity pals including Jennifer Aniston, Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Rob Lowe, Sofia Vergara, Will Ferrell, Robert Downey, Jr., Kerry Washington, Mike Myers, Jon Hamm and Pierce Brosnan, among many others, to help her appeal to the public for donations and man the social media outlets in Los Angeles to boost funds for the organisation, which supports research into groundbreaking new cancer treatments.

Charity totals for the fourth biennial event, which was broadcast live across the U.S. and Canada, have since been tallied and the amount raised this year exceeded 2012’s fundraiser by $28 million.

The hour-long broadcast also featured performances from the Dave Matthews Band, The Who, Ariana Grande and Jennifer Hudson and rappers Common and Lupe Fiasco.

The Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) telethon has now raised more than $369 million since its launch in 2008.
