Guests can "Dine with a Purpose" to Help Advance Pediatric Cancer Research

SPARTANBURG, S.C., March 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Now through April 6, 2022, guests at participating Denny's locations are invited to "Dine with a Purpose"  by rounding up their checks to the nearest dollar or donating $3 to support Cookies for Kids' Cancer.

Every day, 43 kids in the U.S are diagnosed with some form of cancer and more than 40,000 kids throughout the country are receiving treatment as part of their battle with the disease. For the 12th year in a row, several Denny's franchise owners have joined forces to help Cookies for Kids' Cancer raise awareness and fund research to support new treatments for kids fighting all pediatric cancers. Since the partnership began in 2011, Denny's guests have donated more than $700,000 to help get treatment from the research lab to children's bedsides in the shortest timeframe possible.

"The statistics around pediatric cancer are startling. As America's Diner, we are committed to making a life-changing difference in the lives of these children and that's the primary factor that drives our support of Cookies for Kids' Cancer year after year," said Denny's Chief Brand Officer John Dillon. "This fundraiser is being led by several of our franchise owners across the country who are dedicated to uniting their local communities to make a national impact by supporting the bodies, minds and souls of the next generation."
