Living Well. Living Better.

Join us to celebrate cancer survivors at the 2024 Northwestern Medicine Walk & 5K.

This event features a chip-timed 5K run, 1-mile walk — followed by a fun-filled, family-friendly festival!

We hope you will celebrate with us by becoming a participant or sponsor of this event. Net proceeds from the event will go toward the educational and clinical support programs and services provided by Northwestern Medicine Living Well Cancer Resources.

Living Well exists to provide compassionate care that empowers, encourages, supports and offers hope to patients with cancer and their families. Their commitment is unwavering: Help people facing cancer feel empowered with knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by the supportive community at Living Well. Through these programs and services, patients with cancer, their caregivers and cancer survivors learn vital skills that enhance their quality of life.
