Offering their support for the second year in a row, Metro Diner will unite with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) to change children’s lives. The two Tampa-based organizations are repeating their successful “round-up” campaign during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September to help raise funds for clinical trials to find a faster cure in eliminating pediatric cancer.
Now through Monday, September 30, guests at all 71 Metro Diner locations can opt to round their check up to the nearest dollar. They can also choose to donate $1, $2, $5 or a custom amount. All funds will go directly towards clinical trials and drugs that focus exclusively on childhood cancers, which affect approximately 1 in every 85 kids in the United States.
“We are excited to partner with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation once again to help them reach their fundraising goals,” says Crafton Bryant, director of marketing for Metro Diner. “Metro Diner is honored to be able to raise awareness for an organization that is making huge strides and uncovering new developments to treat these devastating illnesses.”
