Northwestern Mutual – with locations in Minneapolis, Edina, Minnetonka, Woodbury, St. Cloud and Duluth – recently hosted their 6th Annual Chip for Charity Event which brought in more than $40,000 in proceeds. The proceeds will fund pediatric cancer research through the American Cancer Society and also help local families through Tanner’s Team Foundation and the Patrick McMullen Smile in My Heart Foundation.
“It is our goal to support our communities and do our part to come alongside families affected by this terrible disease and work to eradicate the source,” says Managing Director Josh Longnecker
From the American Cancer Society’s Kim Orn, “The American Cancer Society appreciates the community partnership and contribution from Northwestern Mutual. Cancer doesn’t fight fair at any age, and it is particularly devastating for children. Substantial progress has been made against some types of pediatric cancers, boosting survival for individuals with those cancers. However, there are still several types of kids’ cancers with low survival rates or no known cure; we can change the odds and fight back together.”
For decades, Northwestern Mutual has been committed to improving the quality of life in their local communities by contributing their financial and volunteer support. The enduring relationship between Northwestern Mutual and local communities creates the connected, caring relationship the company hopes to achieve with policy-owners. The Northwestern Mutual Chip for Charity event has raised nearly $250,000 for pediatric cancer.
