On Sunday, October 23, Panera Bread will present Step up for Stefanie, a 5K and 2-mile Fun Walk/Run to benefit the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research at the OSUCCC – James. Participants will start and finish the race at Ohio Stadium.
Information on the race is available at the 20 Panera cafes in central Ohio or at www.stepupforstefanie.org. “This event is designed to bring families together for a morning of physical activity with a purpose. What better way to extend Stefanie Spielman’s legacy of hope than by rallying families together to raise money for breast cancer research that is being conducted right here in central Ohio,” says Sam Covelli, Founder and President of Covelli Enterprises, owner of the Columbus Panera cafes.
In conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Step Up for Stefanie, all Panera Bread bakery-cafes will be supporting the cause with coffee and bagels.
Purchase your Stefanie Spielman Mug for a Cure in October and receive free coffee refills during the entire month of October. A portion of the proceeds from every mug sold will benefit the Spielman Fund.
Go Pink with Panera Bread on Tuesday, October 4th! One hundred percent of the proceeds from every Pink Ribbon Bagel sold will benefit the Spielman Fund. During the rest of October, 10% of every Pink Ribbon Bagel sold will benefit the fund as well.
