Event description
One in 285 children are diagnosed with childhood cancer by age 20. Yet this deadly disease is severely underfunded. Let's run for a cure!

About this Event

Northwestern Mutual Indiana and Purdue University Northwest are teaming up for the 2nd Annual Elemonate Cancer 5K. Proceeds from this family-friendly event will go to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, our national pediatric-cancer research partner.

One in 285 children will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they turn 20. Despite this, less than 4% of the federal government’s total funding for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers each year. That's why your support is so important.

About NM

Northwestern Mutual Indiana's Crown Point office is committed to improving the lives of children and families through financial support, volunteerism, and collaboration with community partners to build stronger communities.

Since 2012, Northwestern Mutual has contributed over $17 million to childhood-cancer efforts and funded over 200,000 hours of research. And we are proud to say there are children who are cancer free today because of those research dollars.
