Stoughton's Burger King Supporting Pediatric Cancer Research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
More than 600 Burger King restaurants are participating in "A Chance for Kids" program, including the Stoughton location on Park St. This is the 13th consecutive year Burger King is taking part.
The following is a press release from Burger King/The Jimmy Fund:
Burger King guests can help fight childhood cancers from May 28 through July 1 by donating $1 to the Jimmy Fund through the A Chance for Kids program at participating Burger King restaurants in six New England states.
With each contribution, restaurant guests will receive a promotion card guaranteed to be a winner, with prizes ranging from all-inclusive resort vacations and airline tickets, to theme park admissions and Burger King food.
The Stoughton Burger King, located on the Stoughton/Brockton line at 1333 Park St., is participating in the program.
Through the A Chance for Kids program, more than 600 franchise and company-owned Burger King restaurants set a goal to raise $1.2 million for pediatric cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
“The Burger King family around the world is dedicated to making a difference in the communities in which we work and live,” said Jim Froio, Burger King franchisee.
“Cancer touches so many lives and A Chance for Kids helps support the fine work done at Dana-Farber ridding the world of pediatric cancer. We are happy to continue our support of this program and look forward to supporting it in the future.”
In the last 12 years, participating Burger King restaurants have raised $10.3 million for pediatric cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute through A Chance for Kids.
This year, the Burger King restaurants in New England that will participate in the campaign include: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont.
A Chance for Kids supports the many young cancer patients who are treated at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund Clinic. The lifesaving research conducted at Dana-Farber will ultimately help pediatric cancer patients from around the world.
“For the past 12 years, Burger King employees and their restaurant guests have been an invaluable partner in our fight against pediatric cancers,” said Suzanne Fountain, director of the Jimmy Fund.
