Subway partners with state parks to celebrate centennial

Anyone who visits participating SUBWAY® restaurants and shows their Discover Pass during the month of September will receive a free six-inch sandwich with the purchase of a six-inch sandwich of equal or greater value and a 30 oz. drink. SUBWAY® restaurants also will distribute the Washington State Parks brochure – Adventure Awaits - at all locations throughout the region.

In honor of the Washington State Parks Centennial and National Public Lands Day, the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and SUBWAY® restaurants have partnered to launch No Family Left Inside. Running the entire month of September, this program will reward park visitors by honoring their Discover Pass in all 406 SUBWAY® restaurants located in 17 counties throughout Western Washington.

“Encouraging families to lead healthier, active lifestyles is very important to us,” said Paul Armour, SUBWAY® Advertising Board Chairman. “Getting outside and enjoying the great outdoors together is a great way to do that, and that’s why we decided to launch the No Family Left Inside program.”

SUBWAY® restaurants in the following counties are participating in the No Family Left Inside program: King, Snohomish, Chelan, Clallam, Douglas, Grays Harbor, Island, Jefferson, Kitsap, Lewis, Mason, Pacific, Pierce, San Juan, Skagit, Thurston and Whatcom. On Sept. 28, the 20th anniversary of National Public Lands Day, the Discover Pass requirement is waived at Washington state parks. National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. Volunteers will plant trees, remove trash and build trails at public lands in Washington and across the nation.

SUBWAY® restaurants will help celebrate this special day by giving away $5,000 in cash cards to the first 100 people to visit designated state parks on Sept. 28. These parks include Larrabee near the city of Bellingham, Deception Pass on Whidbey Island, Lincoln Rock in Douglas County, Lake Sammamish in Issaquah, Millersylvania near Olympia, Twin Harbors in Grays Harbor County, Belfair in Mason County, Dosewallips on the shore of Hood Canal in Jefferson County, Fort Worden in Port Townsend and Saltwater in King County.

“We are grateful and excited to be working with SUBWAY® restaurants to promote the Washington State Discover Pass and the healthy recreation people can enjoy on our public lands,” said Don Hoch, director of the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission. “This partnership also highlights the purpose of public lands day in raising awareness about the beautiful natural places available to all.”
