Detroit Lions Serve Up Pizza to Support Cancer Awareness


The Detroit Lions punter Sam Martin, along with a few of his teammates, will be serving up slices of pizza from the Bigalora Wood Fired Food Truck from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday at Eastern Market in Detroit in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Fifteen percent of all sales will be donated to Game On Cancer, a joint campaign between the Detroit Lions and Henry Ford Health System benefiting cancer patients by providing groceries, transportation, medications, utilities and other costs on cancer.

“When I heard about the opportunity to hook up with Bigalora’s food truck, meet some fans and raise money for Game on Cancer, I was immediately excited,” says Martin. “I love getting out in the community and meeting the fans that support us — and if we can support a local organization at the same time, we’ve got a “win-win.”

The Bigalora Wood Fired Food Truck will be at Eastern Market from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Live updates of the event can be found on Twitter by following Sam Martin, @SamMartin_6, or Bigalora Wood Fired Food Truck, @BigaloraTruck, with hashtag #GameOnCancer.
