Are you brave enough to take on the challenge? Eight slices in a delicious One Guy’s pie, but will you get the spicy slice?
Longtime Covenant Children’s supporter, One Guy from Italy, is asking Lubbock to take on their Pizza Roulette Spicy Slice challenge to help raise awareness for pediatric cancer and funds for Covenant Children’s.
For $2, customers can upgrade their pizza to Pizza Roulette, meaning one slice will come out spicy, but you won’t know which one. That $2 upgrade fee will go directly to Covenant Children’s Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Clinic.
“Taking on our spicy slice challenge is nothing compared to the challenge these kids have to take on everyday living with cancer,” owner Gabe Vitela said.
September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Cancer Society, about 10,470 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2022.
After accidents, cancer is the second leading cause of death in children ages 1 to 14. About 1,050 children under the age of 15 are expected to die from cancer in 2022.
“One of our biggest priorities at Covenant Children’s is to ensure a bright and thriving future for our pediatric cancer patients,” Covenant Children’s CEO Dr. Amy Thompson said. “One Guy from Italy is helping us with that goal by not only their financial contribution to our clinic but the awareness they are raising for how many kids are
impacted by childhood cancer.”
The Pizza Roulette Spicy Slice challenge is going on from September 22 to October 22 at these locations.
- One Guy from Italy, 1101 University Avenue
- One Guy from Italy, 4320 50th Street
- Giorgio’s Pizza, 1018 Broadway Street
