Area residents are invited to enjoy a free regular sized sub at Jersey Mike’s Subs in Flower Mound or any DFW Jersey Mike’s location in exchange for a minimum $2 contribution to Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer this Wednesday, March 28.
The event is part of Jersey Mike’s 3rd annual Month of Giving fundraising campaign to benefit Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer (WOKC), a Dallas-based non-profit that raises awareness and funding for pediatric cancer research.
During March, all area Jersey Mike’s restaurants will make a 25 cent donation to WOKC for each regular sub sold and a 50 cent donation for each giant sub sold. Special donation buckets will be available in each store so customers can offer their own contributions to the charity.
The Month of Giving campaign has raised a total of $125,000 over the last two years for Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer which has been used to fund research trials investigating new treatment options for two types of childhood cancers, medulloblastoma and neuroblastoma and to expand the WOKC Buddy Bag program which reaches out to newly diagnosed families.
“Pediatric cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in our country. Thanks to the amazing support of donors like Jersey Mike’s we are making a difference in the fight for better treatments and the search for a cure,” said Evelyn Costolo, CEO for Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer.
“Jersey Mike’s understands the importance of standing together for the future of our children. Thank you Jersey Mike’s and the DFW community for helping WOKC with our vision of a day with children are living cancer free.”
Jersey Mike’s Subs is located at 2701 Cross Timbers Road, Flower Mound, TX 75028.
