Together again! Lurie Cancer Center Survivors’ Celebration Walk & 5k

On Sunday, June 5, 2022, our Cancer Survivors’ Celebration Walk & 5K brought us together again! After two years of celebrating virtually, more than 2,500 cancer survivors and supporters gathered in Chicago’s Grant Park to connect as a community, celebrate milestones and advance life-changing research.

From start to finish, the morning was filled with music, entertainment, a picnic, activities for the family, a Dedication Wall filled with messages of love and support, and inspiring survivors who shared their stories on National Cancer Survivors Day. Members and supporters of The Northwestern Woman’s Board along with the Debutantes volunteer where needed to enhance participant experience. Board members and friends personally celebrate with the Northwestern patients and their healthcare providers who we help support financially throughout the year.

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.
