Every year, Ontarians step up to support those affected by kidney disease at the Ontario Kidney Walks and this year isn’t any different with over $120,000 already raised!
The Kidney Foundation provides support services such as short-term financial assistance in times of need, peer support to help them cope, and valuable information including webinars, handbooks, brochures, and dietary web tools. By championing systemic changes and increasing public awareness of kidney health and organ donation, they are alleviating the burden of kidney disease.
This year’s walk allows you to participate no matter where you live. Participants typically walk 5km, but any distance that you are comfortable with will do and you can register as an individual or as part of a team. The final online walk celebration will take place on September 26 so Let’s help them reach their goal of $600,000!
