Burger King helps fight pediatric cancer

DERRY — Burger King guests can help fight childhood cancers through July 1 by donating $1 to the Jimmy Fund through the "A Chance for Kids" program at participating 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 food.

The Derry restaurant at 35 Manchester Road is among those participating.

The goal is to raise $1.2 million for pediatric cancer research and care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

"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.

For more information about the Jimmy Fund or "A Chance for Kids," visit participating restaurants, visit JimmyFund.org or call 617-582-9675.
