Marquette Bank Employees Walk to Support Pancreatic Cancer Research
Local bank's 3rd annual Evelyn's Walk raises money for the Michael Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation
Orland Park, IL (Aug. 15, 2013) –– Employees of Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood 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. “Pancreatic cancer hits close to home because I lost my father to the disease and I worked with Evelyn for many years at the bank,” Nina Sonsikoski, Senior Marketing Manager and organizer of the walk, said. “Having this walk every year in their memory is a great way to honor them while increasing awareness and raising money for pancreatic cancer research.” 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.
