Kidney Walk 2018
Every year, some 15,000 volunteers and participants gather at Kidney Walks in communities throughout the country to raise awareness and funds for those affected by kidney disease. Patients, caregivers, medical professionals, family members, and other caring and compassionate individuals participate in The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s cornerstone fundraising event to help support innovative and ground-breaking research projects and to offer crucial programs and services to the thousands of people living with kidney disease.
The Kidney Walk is one of the largest volunteer driven fundraising events for the Kidney Foundation of Canada. The majority of walkers who participate in the Kidney Walk have a personal connection to kidney disease or organ donation. Volunteers in 16 communities throughout BC & Yukon were involved in the Kidney Walk and last year the BC & Yukon Branch raised more than $342,000 to better the lives of people living with kidney disease.
Every step is a giant leap forward in the fight against kidney disease. Register online and join the Kidney Walk!
