Failure is not an option

3 days • 100 KM • K-Country to Calgary

Walk the farthest you have ever walked and raise the most you have ever raised to fight kidney disease and boost organ donation. 3.5 Million Canadians have chronic kidney disease or are at risk. Most people don’t even know until it’s too late. Join us at Kidney March.

THANK YOU MARCHERS & CREW! YOU raised just over $1.4 Million Dollars (and counting) at Kidney March 2019 for kidney disease and organ donation. “We are thrilled to have incredible support from our community. It is truly inspiring,” says Joyce Van Deurzen, Executive Director of the Kidney Foundation of Canada, Southern Alberta. “Kidney March asks Marchers and Crew to do the most they can do for kidney disease and organ donation, and they certainly have. Calgary is an absolute worldwide centre of excellence on kidney research so this money makes a huge difference, it’s going to change lives, there’s no question about that," says Van Deurzen.

Today's training tip from Tinkle Bell the Kidney March Elf.
STRETCH before, after and between any training. Tight muscles are more prone to injury and can leave you feeling fatigued. Leading into the holidays give back to your body by taking a few minutes out of your day to stretch. Sometimes the best gift we can give is self-care.
