Jersey Mike’s gives free subs to help Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer for a second year

Among Jimmy Johns and New York Subs, Jersey Mike’s Subs is a popular sandwich go-to for many SMU students. And through this weekend, students choosing Mike’s over Jimmy’s will be helping children wipe out cancer.

For a second year in a row, Jersey Mike’s has dedicated the month of March to contribute to Wipe Out Kids’ Cancer (WOKC) for each sub it sells. From Feb. 28, the sub shop has been giving 25 cents of every regular-sized sub and 50 cents of every giant sub sold to the organization.

Go in to any of the 14 Jersey Mike’s in DFW on Monday, March 28 and donate at least a buck to WOKC, and you’ll be handed a free regular sub as part of “WOKC Day.”

While all of this is consistent with last year’s campaign (that raised over $50,000), this year  SMU students and faculty get a WOKC day of their own Friday, March 25 at the Greenville Avenue location. Just bring your SMU ID and at least $1 to donate.

The money raised last year provided funding for four pediatric cancer research trials in 2011 at Children’s Medical Center Dallas and Cook Children’s Medical Center Fort Worth: so skipping the savory pastrami at New York Subs for an Italian sub at Jersey Mike’s this month may be worth it.
