Time to get #FitForTheFrontLine
Your support makes their lives better

Healthcare workers aren’t just on the front line against COVID-19. They are the front line. These nurses, physicians and other healthcare heroes are working tirelessly for all of us. And now you can show your appreciation for their courage and dedication by joining in the national #FitForTheFrontLine movement.

Raise money by sharing your fitness feats on social media and asking your friends and family for their support, or simply donate directly to Northwestern Medicine #FitForTheFrontLine. Either way, you’ll acknowledge the selfless sacrifice of these Heroes for Better and remind them that they can count on you too.

Your contribution will support the health, resilience and vitality of front-line healthcare workers. Funds will be used to help employee and physician wellness, employee crisis assistance and safety-net services for Northwestern Medicine’s community partners.
