TRUSSVILLE — Metro Diner in Trussville is joining in on the fight to cure childhood cancers during Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.
During the month of September, the restaurant will be raising money to fund the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF).
Metro Diners nationwide will be participating in the fundraiser they call the “roundup campaign.” Guests are able to round their check up to the nearest dollar and the extra funds will go directly towards clinical trials and drugs that focus exclusively on childhood cancers. Guests may also donate a custom amount to the cause.
The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancer through the Sunshine Project, the Foundation’s collaborative research initiative. By partnering with doctors and researchers from the country’s top institutions, the Sunshine Project is fast-tracking the development of less toxic therapies and new drugs that will ultimately lead to the cure of childhood cancers.
