Coffee for a Cure


The Ara Parseghian Medical Research Fund and the College of Science recently launched the Coffee for a Cure program with Mother Parker’s brands of coffee and Tim Hortons. They have committed to donate 5¢to rare disease research for every cup—$1.20/box of 24 cups—of Tim Hortons coffee and 3¢ for *every cup ($0.72/box of 24 cups) of all other Mother Parker Brands of Coffee & Tea purchased through L&S Personal Coffee (orders in Canada can use this link). A portion of the proceeds will go directly to the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Fund and our efforts to find a cure for Niemann-Pick Type C disease.

What is also exciting about their coffee pods is they are some of the first recyclable EcoCup offered and compliment the University’s efforts for a more sustainable environment!
