Giant Food Kicks off Annual Triple Winner Program

The eighth annual Triple Winner game benefitting the Pediatric Oncology Division at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center began April 13. This year, Giant has committed to raise $1.5 million for the fight against children’s cancer.

Customers can donate $1 at their neighborhood Giant to receive a Triple Winner scratch card. Every card is a winner, and prizes include a free product, gift card, or cash up to $10,000. One hundred percent of the donations will go directly to the Pediatric Oncology Division at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and The Children’s Cancer Foundation.

Each year, four local children who are patients at the Kimmel Cancer Center are chosen as Triple Winner ambassadors. They serve as the brave faces of childhood cancer. The 2012 ambassadors are:

Neha


Originally from India, Neha, 16, has Lymphoma, but is as bright as they come. She writes short stories and has tutored fellow students. Neha also loves to cook and has distributed food to Washington, D.C.’s homeless.






Rick




Rick, 17, is a member of the National Honor Society and has brain cancer. He organized a fundraiser that resulted in more than $17,000 for cancer research. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is sending Rick and his family to Australia this month, and he plans to attend the University of South Carolina.




“One person, one ticket at a time, Giant’s Triple Winner program provides vital support in the treatment of childhood cancers by rapidly moving research findings from our laboratories to patients,” said Dr. Donald Small, director of pediatric oncology at the Kimmel Cancer Center. “Giant’s extraordinary commitment helps continue our mission to finding cures for childhood cancers.”
