Kidney March: The 100 day countdown starts today

You may have heard the hoots and hollers coming from the Kidney March office today as registration for Kidney March continues to climb.  Just in time for 100 days to Kidney March, we are so close to welcoming our 200th Marcher.  We cheer loudly for everyone who comes onboard as a Marcher or Crew.  And if you’ve been on the fence about signing up… now’s the time. 

In its 5th year, this grassroots movement encourages you to do the most you can do in the fight against kidney disease. To support that and to celebrate 200 Marchers, we’re giving away  a FREE registration and Kidney March swag pack to the person who registers as the 200th Marcher. As friends, family, medical staff or a person living with kidney disease, Kidney March Marchers march with hearts made heavy from the burden of illness and feet made light with the hope of early diagnosis, better treatment and a cure.

Kidney March 2014 needs you! The Kidney Foundation’s National President tells you why.

We’re on a mission to stand up and make noise. We hope you will too.

Most people reading this have been touched by kidney disease in one way or another. If you’re like me, you’re endlessly frustrated by its nature. Debilitating. Incurable. Utterly relentless. To seeing people I know and love go through the daily reality of this disease is disheartening; but I have hope.

Kidney March is in its fifth year. We celebrate how far we’ve come in the field of research, we honour those we know and love who are affected by kidney disease and we put faith in a future where it’s no longer a silent killer that currently affects more than 1 million Canadians. And, most important of all, we do something about it. Something Big.

I’m asking you, to do the most you can possibly do to help plant the boldest flag humanity has ever attempted in the fight against kidney disease and the appeal for organ donation. I’m asking you to join us for the 5th Annual Kidney March.
