Cousins Subs Combos For A Cure Begins

About 33,000 people in Wisconsin will be diagnosed with cancer this year.

The next time you grab lunch at Cousins Subs you'll be helping fight the disease.

The Wisconsin based sandwich chain has announced the second annual Combos For A Cure.

Starting today, when you buy a combo meal at any Cousins in Wisconsin, a portion of the  price will go to the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation to fund cancer research.

Cousins first teamed up with the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation in June 2015 when they kicked off a partnership with the Make It Better Day initiative, where they served more than 700 free lunches to cancer patients, their families and caregivers at all 22 Wisconsin-based Aurora Cancer Care Centers, which include 13 Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinics.

Cousins chose the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation as the beneficiary of the Combos For A Cure fundraiser due to the organizations extensive work in providing much needed support to those with cancer. 

The Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation was established in 1971 after the great Coach Lombardi passed away at the young age of 57 from colon cancer. Through its more than 30-year relationship with Aurora Health Care, the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation has contributed more than $18 million to cancer care and research across Wisconsin. There are 13 Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinics at Aurora Health Care throughout the state. In 2015, the Foundation gave a special $2.2 million gift in honor of its 45-year-anniversary.
