It’s an opportunity for patients, transplant recipients, organ donors, family, friends, groups and businesses to come together to support the millions of people with chronic kidney disease and to spread awareness for those at risk.

Walkers are encouraged to raise a minimum of $100 – however there is no registration fee.
