Jersey Mike’s Subs to Raise Funds For Local Cancer Center
Portion of Oct. 22 Proceeds Goes To "Take a Bite Out of Cancer"™ Campaign
October 4, 2010 • Richardson, TX
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Jersey Mike’s Subs franchisees Julie and Peter Chaump will participate in Methodist Richardson Medical Center Foundation’s “Take a Bite Out of Cancer” campaign benefiting Methodist Richardson Cancer Center. The campaign will help raise funds for targeted radiation therapy equipment, which provides high dose radiation to patients in the early stages of breast cancer.
The Chaumps will donate ten percent of the day’s proceeds from their store at 700 E. Campbell Rd. in Richardson on Oct. 22 and are urging customers to come out, enjoy a sub and support the cause. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
“This cause is very close to my heart,” said Ms. Chaump, who chose the fundraiser date because it is her mother’s birthday. “All four of my mother’s sisters have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are in various stages of recovery and that is thanks to early detection. We are so pleased to support Methodist Richardson Cancer Center and take part in the “Take a Bite out of Cancer” campaign.” The Cancer Center is affiliated with UT Southwestern Medical Center.
“We appreciate Jersey Mike’s participation as we celebrate breast cancer awareness,” said Foundation Director Ann Bartnik. “This is an opportunity for people who live or work in Richardson to enjoy some of the city’s best places to eat – and help a great cause.”
Reaching out to the community is a key component of Jersey Mike’s mission. All franchise owners find ways to support their neighbors and employees are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents as well.
