Marquette Bank Employees Walk to Support Pancreatic Cancer Research

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - HealthEmployees of Marquette Bank recently held a walk to raise money for pancreatic cancer research. The walk took place in Orland Park and over 70 bank employees and family members participated, raising over $2,000 in donations for the Michael Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation. This tradition began three years ago and was inspired by the memory of Evelyn Schap, a retired employee, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2010. This year’s walk also honored other family members of employees who lost their battles with the disease through a special photo project. The event is part of the Marquette Neighborhood Commitment where each quarter, the bank focuses on a different area of need: shelter, hunger, education and health/wellness.
