Northwestern Mutual: Commitment to the cause

August 23, 2019

Every year, Northwestern Mutual offices across the country work tirelessly to raise funds for childhood cancer. At the annual corporate meeting in July, the team at Northwestern Mutual in Sioux Falls was recognized for its fundraising efforts and earned the Most Exceptional Childhood Cancer Impact Award.

“This award would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our agency,” said Kristin Hoefert-Redlinger, chief recruitment officer, while accepting the prestigious award.

Hoefert-Redlinger lifted up the agency employees who helped rally area communities to fight childhood cancer.

“There is no stronger feeling than a family coming together to work toward trying to find a cure,” she said.

The award included a large grant for Northwestern Mutual’s Sioux Falls team to distribute back into the community.

With generous hearts, they directed $67,500 to Sanford Children’s Cure Kids Cancer!
