Held on National Cancer Survivors Day, the Lurie Cancer Center’s Cancer Survivors’ Celebration Walk & 5K brings together cancer survivors, families and their friends with the physicians and health professionals who support them. Members and supporters of The Northwestern Woman’s Board along with the Debutantes (and former Debs) help set up for the day and then participate in the Walk as a group. Board members and friends personally celebrate with the Northwestern patients and their healthcare providers who we help support financially throughout the year.
Participation in the Walk with The Woman’s Board group also raises funds for the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our participation in the Walk fortifies the long-standing tradition of active involvement by members of The Woman’s Board and their friends with the patients and healthcare providers of the hospital. We hope that participation in this special event will inspire all to embrace service and philanthropy at the hospital as an ongoing and rewarding part of their lives.
