The NKF Kidney Walk is an inspiring community fundraiser that calls attention to the prevention of kidney disease and the need for organ donation. Walks are held all over the country so find one near you!
The 2015 Kidney Patient Summit took place in Washington D.C. last week. In total, 100 advocates had meetings with 150 representatives and their staff members. Advocates shared their stories with Congressmen and pushed for legislation protecting kidney patients and donors. Advocates also talked about kidney disease awareness, immuno drug coverage, research, organ donation & more. Many of the advocates participating in the Summit have also been involved with the Kidney Walk.

With the increase in diabetes and high blood pressure -- two major kidney disease risk factors -- kidney disease is on the rise. We’re working to reach the 1 in 3 American adults at risk with important prevention messages before it's too late. Each year, more than 75,000 walkers join the NKF to raise over $8 million to help kidney patients and their families. Your participation in our events has never been more critical.
More than 80 cents of every dollar donated directly supports programs and services. To learn more visit, www.kidney.org.
