2024 Cancer Survivors’ Celebration Walk & 5K

Put on your sneakers and join us for the 2024 Cancer Survivors’ Celebration Walk & 5K. This National Cancer Survivors Day event is family friendly and includes music, entertainment and refreshments. The donations raised will support the compassionate care services provided by Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.


2024 Northwestern Medicine Walk & 5K

Walk, run or cheer on participants at the 2024 Northwestern Medicine Walk & 5K, formerly called the Bridge Walk & 5K. This family-friendly event honors National Cancer Survivors Day and supports the compassionate care services provided by Northwestern Medicine Living Well Cancer Resources.

Your Participation Makes a Lasting Impact

When you take part in a fundraising event, you strengthen Northwestern Medicine's ability to provide world-class medical care so patients live longer, healthier lives. Among those patients is Shelly Battista, who delivered healthy twin girls in December 2022, just two years after being declared cancer-free.
