Northwestern Mutual Donates $40,000 to Childhood Cancer

AUGUST 2017 – Northwestern Mutual-Saint Cloud donated $40,000 at their 4th annual “Chip for Charity” golf tournament in support of the Nicholas P. Koenig H.E.R.O. Foundation and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. The tournament was held June 5, 2017 at the Wapicada Golf Club in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota.

Businesses and community members from around the St. Cloud area took part in the event to support local families dealing with the effects of pediatric cancer.

The Nicholas P. Koenig H.E.R.O. Foundation helps families in many ways: through financial grants, scholarships to 4th year medical students at the University of Minnesota pursuing pediatric oncology, and by supporting children receiving treatment by adopting a room at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital in their son, Nicholas’s, honor.

Erik and Shannon Koenig (founders of the Nicholas P. Koenig H.E.R.O. Foundation) had this to say

“Northwestern Mutual’s Chip for Charity golfing event was one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences we have had since our foundation started in August 2012! Right from the very beginning, when the Nicholas P. Koenig H.E.R.O. Foundation was selected as one of the beneficiaries, each person from the philanthropic team immediately welcomed us all with a warm smile and shared their ideas and determination on ways to raise money to help us accomplish our mission statement, “Shining a light of hope on families affected by pediatric cancer. Without the trust, support and love that we continue to have from our community, we wouldn’t be where we are now. We are forever grateful to the philanthropic team at Northwestern Mutual. It was such an honor to be a part of an amazing event!”

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is a national childhood cancer foundation dedicated to raising funds for research into new treatments and cures for all children battling cancer.

Since the golf tournament’s inception in 2014, $100,000 has been raised by the 30 members of the Saint Cloud office for organizations that focus on families effected by pediatric cancer and cancer research. “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,” states local Managing Director, Josh Longnecker.
