Kidney Walk in planning stages

"We cannot stay silent when almost 50% of British Columbians die before they receive a life-giving kidney transplant."

In 2015, The Kidney Foundation will launch its biggest and highest profile campaign ever with a goal to not just change, but save lives of kidney patients in communities across BC.

We know that until there is a cure, a kidney transplant remains the best available therapy for someone on dialysis.  We cannot stay silent when almost 50% of British Columbians die before they receive a life-giving kidney transplant.

The Kidney Foundation of Canada, BC & Yukon Branch is here to help each and every kidney patient until there is a cure.  We exist to help prevent kidney disease or delay the onset of kidney failure. We also support patients who are at risk of, or who have, chronic kidney disease (CKD) by encouraging early detection and prevention activities, by providing patient services and information for people on dialysis, and by promoting organ donation.  On September 27th., 2015 our  Kidney Walk will take place in Trail.

We are in the planning stages and hope this event will be bigger and better than previous years.  We are in need of many volunteers and are hoping the public will come forward and help us make the event a huge success. You can contact J McKinnon at robnjo@telus.net for further information. Thank you for your continued support in the area.
