LOVELAND, OH -- CancerFree KIDS is proud to announce Jersey Mike's Month of Giving has raised $330,000 for the local nonprofit, meaning more funding for more innovative pediatric cancer research projects in Cincinnati. Since 2015, Jersey Mike's has raised more than $1,000,000 for CancerFree KIDS.

Across the country, March is the Month of Giving at Jersey Mike's. Each location gave 100% of every dollar spent on Wednesday, March 27 to local charities. Additionally, local Jersey Mike's customers could round up for CancerFree KIDS throughout the month of March. The almost 30 local Jersey Mike's locations in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky continued their ten-year partnership with CancerFree KIDS as their charity of choice.

"We thank all of our local Jersey Mike's stores for their generosity in hosting the Month and Day of Giving for CancerFree KIDS, plus volunteers who helped out in the stores, Champion families who visited their local store and everyone who bought a sub to support us," said Jill Brinck, Executive Director of CancerFree KIDS. "This incredible donation will go a long way in funding pediatric cancer research right here at home."

CancerFree KIDS is focused on finding more effective and gentler treatments for childhood cancer by funding innovative research projects in the early stages of development. CancerFree KIDS provides grants to high-risk/high-reward childhood cancer research projects in these crucial early stages, which allows researchers to prove their concept, secure additional funding, and eventually create new treatments for kids. To date, CancerFree KIDS has invested $9.45 million in local cancer research projects.
