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.
Give the Gift of Life Walk – Sault Ste. Marie, will take place on Saturday, September 8, 2018 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM at Roberta Bondar Pavilion
Sault Ste. Marie, ON
The Walk will start at 10:00 a.m.
Your participation in the Kidney Walks provides hope for those living with kidney disease when they need it most. A diagnosis of kidney disease is life changing and impacts the entire family. For some, it means losing hours of the week to dialysis, which affects opportunities to work, travel or spend time together.
The Walks are The Kidney Foundation’s largest community fundraiser.
While the events only last a few hours, the relationships built for those who attend have a lasting impact. The Foundation aims to support those affected by kidney disease through education, patient support programs like Kidney Connect peer support, advocacy efforts, and by investing in research to improve the future of kidney care in Canada. https://www.kidney.ca/
