People in Charlottesville are flipping for free pancakes, all while helping to fight cancer.

Tuesday is IHOP's Second Annual 'National Pancake Day,' where the restaurant gives away free pancakes until 10 p.m.

In exchange for each free stack, IHOP invites people to make a donation to the Leukemia-Lymphoma Society.

IHOP Manager, Jennifer McCullough, says all the money donated stays in our area.

"Cancer research, education, patient services," listed McCullough. "Those are the things in which they their donations are used for."

The restaurant's goal is to earn over $500,000 nationally and give out over one million free pancakes.
