PAPA JOHN’S PIZZA TEAMS UP WITH EVERYMAN CANCER CAMPAIGN

June 3rd, 2010

As The Institute of Cancer Research prepares to celebrate its annual Everyman Male Cancer Awareness Month in June, one of the charity’s partners is offering supporters a way to show their support by purchasing pizza.

Papa John’s Pizza has just launched a new pizza to support the Everyman Campaign, which will see the company donating 50p from every sale.

Topped with spicy meatballs, pepperoni, jalapeno slices and red onions Papa John’s believes that this new product will benefit the fundraising effort for the Everyman Campaign.

A spokesperson for Papa John’s said:

“The Everyman Campaign is a fantastic cause worth supporting. We are running a number of fundraising initiatives across our 138 stores, but we all agreed that the best way to support Everyman would be to do what we do best – create a fantastic tasting pizza!

That’s why we have created the Spicy Meatball Pizza in support of Everyman, which sees us donate 50p from every one of the pizzas sold.”

The Everyman Campaign is dedicated to stamping out male cancer by raising awareness of the tell-tale signs, and helping people to understand

the importance of treating them. By increasing this awareness the charity hope to raise money to fund life-saving research.

35,000 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed every year and this figure is on the increase. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men and one man dies every hour of this disease.

Tatjana Trposka, from the Everyman Campaign, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with Papa John’s and really hope that pizza lovers will enjoy the limited edition Everyman pizza.

Not only will they have a delicious meal, but they’ll also be doing their bit to raise funds for our vital research into male cancers.”
