This fall The Kidney Foundation of Canada is asking people across Ontario to take steps to fight kidney disease and join with their communities for the 2015 Kidney Walk.
Today, 1 in 10 Canadians has kidney disease and millions more are at risk. Nearly 10,000 Ontarians depend on life-sustaining dialysis treatments several times a week, over 1,000 are waiting for a kidney transplant, and countless others live with reduced kidney function that may have gone undetected.
Every step you take on your Kidney Walk journey will provide 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. That’s why teams of friends and families will join together to walk to support their loved ones.
Create a team and join together at a Kidney Walk near you to help make a difference. It only requires a little time and effort, but each step will provide hope to many. Registration is easy online at www.kidneywalk.ca. The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s Kidney Walks are taking place in 41 communities in Ontario throughout September and early October.
The Kidney Foundation of Canada works to improve the lives of all people affected by kidney disease through research, government advocacy, peer support, education and programs.
Join the kidney community at Kidney Walk and help create a future without kidney disease.
