Pancheros Donates to University of Iowa Hospital

For the seventh year in a row, Pancheros Mexican Grill teamed up with University of Iowa for their annual Dance Marathon, donating over 1,800 burritos to the event.

Benefiting the pediatric cancer unit of the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital, Pancheros fueled hungry dancers with their legendary burrito creations.
 
Famous for their signature fresh-pressed tortillas and burritos, Pancheros provides a distinctive Mexican dining experience for its customers. Fan favorites include: quesadillas, tacos, burrito bowls, and salads, all of which are made with freshly grilled meats and vegetables.
 
“Pancheros is honored to be able to work with the University of Iowa again to feed hungry dancers and motivate them to raise even more money for such a worthy cause,” says Rodney Anderson, president of Pancheros Mexican Grill. “Having such strong ties to Iowa, we could not be happier to give back to a community, which has some of our biggest burrito supporters.”
 
“Pancheros has been a dedicated and charitable sponsor to Dance Marathon for the past seven years, feeding 2,000 dancers annually,” says Sarah Brumwell, associate director of Children’s Miracle Network. “We are so thankful for their partnership.”
 
Since 1994, The University of Iowa Dance Marathon has been committed to raising money to benefit children battling pediatric cancer at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. Last year the event raised a record-breaking $1,220,146.17, with plans of only surpassing that number this year. Recently, the University of Iowa Dance Marathon pledged to donate five million dollars over a ten-year period to help fund a new building for the hospital.
