Madison-area Subway Restaurants are raising funds for the UW–Madison Carbone Cancer Center.
Through Wednesday, April 27, Madison-area Subway restaurants, including in Platteville, can participate in the Subway Cares Program by donating $1 or more at checkout. All funds will go directly toward UW Carbone Cancer Center to fund cancer research. The program will conclude Wednesday, April 27.
“We’re thrilled to have this partnership with UW Carbone Cancer Center as we raise funds to assist in their cancer research efforts,” said Bret Saalsaa, a local owner of several Subway Restaurants.
UW Carbone Cancer Center has been a leader in cancer research and treatment over several years, including developing tamoxifen, one of the best therapies for treating and preventing breast cancer.
"We truly value the relationship and support we have received from Subway and its customers over the last few years," said Howard Bailey, MD, UW Carbone Cancer Center director. "Cancer is unfortunately ubiquitous. We're all affected by it. We want to expand what we do by conducting more research and providing better treatments for all cancer patients.
"We have faculty and staff who are deeply committed. We want to use more of our funding to be the center that helps people throughout the state. We want to be truly the University of Wisconsin cancer center."
