The Cure Starts Now and Graeter’s team up once again this September for their annual Cones for the Cure campaign. September 7-17, participating Cincinnati, Dayton, Cleveland, Chicago, Columbus, Indianapolis, Lexington, Louisville and Pittsburgh Graeter’s locations will help spread the word about The Cure Starts Now and its mission to find the homerun cure for cancer by focusing on pediatric brain cancer.
As part of their continued support for The Cure Starts Now, Graeter’s will be giving away free scoops of Elena’s Blueberry Pie ice cream to customers two times during the September 7-17 campaign. During Cones for the Cure, guests that visit a Graeter’s store will have the opportunity to donate a $1 or $5 “Cone for the Cure.” Graeter’s will also offer a $20 savings booklet for every donation of $5 or more to The Cure Starts Now.
In 2016, over $136,000 was raised in just two weeks!
About The Cure Starts Now and Elena’s Blueberry Pie Ice Cream:
Started in 2007 in tribute to a 6-year-old girl named Elena Desserich, The Cure Starts Now Foundation has revolutionized cancer research worldwide with its focus on a homerun cure for all cancers. The Cure Starts Now has funded over $7.3 million in groundbreaking pediatric brain cancer research. With 31 chapters in 3 countries, The Cure Starts Now is making a difference in the fight against cancer. The Cure Starts Now has also been recognized by The Today Show, Good Morning America, CNN, People Magazine, Inside Edition and media worldwide for the inspiration it offers to all that fight cancer.
Elena’s Blueberry Pie Ice Cream was named after Elena as part of a wish donated by Graeter’s to The Cure Starts Now’s annual Once in a Lifetime Gala & Auction. The Groteke family won the wish and invented the flavor in 2008. Elena’s heart painting is the inspiration for the pint design. A portion of the proceeds from every scoop benefits The Cure Starts Now.
