Community Involvement

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

 

Camp Casey is a non-profit organization that provides horseback riding programs to children with cancer and rare blood disorders.  Tek was introduced to Camp Casey through a mutual friend and colleague and currently serves on the board of directors.

Tek and Northwestern Mutual are committed to engaging and giving back to national foundations and to local communities. A cause that is close to heart of Northwestern Mutual is the fight against childhood cancer. Through the company’s national partnership with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, we are able to improve the lives of children and families fighting cancer at a national and at a local level.

University of Michigan's Chalice Bonifant, M.D./Ph.D. has received a $100,000 grant from Northwestern Mutual to fund childhood cancer research. The award supports Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation's Young Investigator program, a program designed specifically to assist scientists in the early stages of their careers as they pursue promising research ideas. Dr. Bonifant researches immunotherapies for pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a type of high-risk blood cancer. Her work with immune cells has shown promise in early clinical research and this grant allows for further testing against AML. We are more than happy to support this endeavor.

It was an amazing day of smiles at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital and the Ronal McDonald House in Ann Arbor, Michigan when the Northwestern Mutual-Troy team assembled and delivered 280 Cheeriodicals!  In June of 2013, Tek gathered with some of his colleagues to help give back to the community. He volunteered in the Cheeriodicals of Children’s Hospital of Michigan. Cheeriodicals is an organization that accepts donations and volunteers to help put together boxes filled with goodies, and then donate the Cheeriodical boxes to the recipient. 240 big green boxes were donated to the Children’s Hospital of Michigan from Northwestern Mutual. Tek was thrilled to be a part of this organization. He feels that he is very blessed to where he is today and giving back to the community is just a small way to say thanks!
