"The Burger King community is proud to partner with the Jimmy Fund each year for A Chance for Kids and Families,” said Larry Kohler, CEO of Mastoran Corporation, a Burger King franchisee. “Cancer affects almost everyone in one way or another, and we are honored to support cancer research, patient care, and overall, the lifesaving mission of Dana-Farber to end cancer.”
Since 2000, participating Burger King restaurants have raised more than $13 million for the Jimmy Fund to support patient care and cancer research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
“We are proud to continue to partner with Burger King each year for A Chance for Kids & Families,” said David Giagrando, assistant vice president, corporate partnerships in Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Division of Development & the Jimmy Fund. “The generous support from Burger King franchisees, employees and restaurant guests directly benefits the Jimmy Fund and significantly impacts Dana-Farber’s mission to cure cancer.”
