Community Involvement


Childhood Cancer Program 2016

Jim serves as a member on the Childhood Cancer Impact Committee. The goal of our Childhood Cancer Impact Committee is to work collaboratively to accelerate the search for a cure to childhood cancer and help families face the daily struggles of this disease.

As a business, we help people secure their futures and reach for their dreams.  For many children, however, cancer puts their future in jeopardy. 

We're Raising Awareness and Funding for Childhood Cancer Research

Pediatric cancer research and support services are vastly and consistently underfunded, yet cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 years old, according to the National Cancer Institute.  We're working to accelerate the search for cures for childhood cancer and provide support for families fighting the disease. We're partnering with the Northwestern Mutual Foundation and our non-profit partner Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise critical dollars for research. We provide help for today and hope for tomorrow.

We're Fighting Childhood Cancer ˜One Cup at A Time'

In 2015, we built lemonade stands and hosted them throughout Chicago. We also had a Golf Outing, ran for the cause, and sponsored Casual Days at our office. In that year, our firm raised more than $130,000 which will help fund 2,600 hours of research. We were also the recipient of the Northwestern Mutual Foundation Childhood Cancer Impact Award. This award recognizes our philanthropic outreach and will provide a $50,000 grant to childhood cancer programs.

We're Supporting Kids and their Families
In 2016, we have provided care packages for 200 hospitalized children at The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital.

We're looking forward to making an even bigger impact in the years ahead.  Check out our firm's Community Involvement and follow us on Twitter to learn more about how we're fighting childhood cancer, one cup at a time.
