Donating, dancing for kids

The Jersey Mike's Subs restaurant at 505 E. Green St., C, will take part in the chain's March "Month of Giving" fund-raising campaign.

The local restaurant has designated as its charity the Illini Dance Marathon benefiting the Children's Miracle Network/St. John's Children's Hospital in Springfield.

During March, customers can make donations to the charity at the restaurant.

Then, on March 26, Jersey Mike's in Champaign will give 100 percent of that day's sales to the Illini Dance Marathon benefit. The actual dance marathon begins the evening of March 14 and is expected to last several hours.

Last year's Month of Giving campaign raised $1.7 million for 86 charities nationwide. Since 2010, Jersey Mike's locations across the country have raised nearly $7.5 million for local causes.

The submarine sandwich chain has more than 1,300 locations open and under development nationwide.
