Papa Murphy's International has announced that it has joined the 2012 American Cancer Society Relay For Life National Team Program. Employees and franchise owners will come together this year to raise money for the American Cancer Society's efforts to fight the disease.
"Papa Murphy's is proud to be a part of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life National Corporate Team Program. Our commitment will help raise funds to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays," said Ken Calwell, Papa Murphy's CEO.
Relay For Life National Corporate Team Program members commit to forming 50 or more relay teams throughout the country and in every major office or location. Papa Murphy's is one of 51 companies participating in the Relay For Life National Corporate Team Program in 2012.
The fifth largest pizza chain now includes more than 1,300 locations in 37 states and Canada, all of which have a nearby Relay For Life event.
An American Cancer Society Relay For Life event lasts up to 24 hours and brings together teams from local businesses, schools, churches and families to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer and remember loved ones lost.
