Celebrating the beginning of its third year, Newk’s Cares—the ovarian cancer awareness movement spearheaded by fast-casual Newk’s Eatery—has reached a landmark fundraising milestone, having raised more than half a million dollars for the cause to date.

“At the start of Newk’s Cares, none of us could have predicted we would be passing the $500,000 mark two years in and have had the opportunity to engage hundreds of women and their loved ones in a conversation that has life-saving potential,” says Chris Newcomb, Newk’s Eatery’s CEO and co-founder.
