Step up to raise awareness of kidney disease, organ donation and the importance of early screening and healthy lifestyle for those at risk. Don’t miss the National Kidney Foundation’s inspiring community fundraiser. In addition to the 3-mile walk (or optional shorter path), enjoy a photobooth, music, the Kidney Kids Corner with face painting and games, a t-shirt design competition, prizes, giveaways and vendor exhibits.
Complimentary refreshments will be available from such vendors as Sprouts, Wegmans and 2Betties,who will provide a variety of renal friendly treats: in fact Kidney Walk will be one of the first places people can sample their Pumpkin Rounds. Participants also can purchase items from various food trucks and Kona Ice, who will donate 15 to 20 percent of sales back to NKF.
Funds raised through Kidney Walk will directly support NKF’s local patient services, education and research efforts. Participation is free, but donations are encouraged. Everyone who raises a minimum of $100 will receive a commemorative Walk t-shirt. Additional recognition gifts – including jackets – will be awarded for meeting various fundraising levels.
The NKF is the largest, most comprehensive and longstanding organization dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease. For more information, visit www.kidney.org.
