KIDNEY MARCH CHECKLIST: WHAT TO BRING

Below you’ll find a suggested list of what to bring with you for your weekend blazing the trail in the fight against kidney disease and the appeal for organ donation. If you have any questions while you’re digging into the list, feel free to give the Team a shout at any time.

A NOTE ABOUT YOUR LUGGAGE:You will be allowed one gear bag weighing up to 18 kg, including the weight of your sleeping bag and any pad or air mattress you wish to bring for sleeping. Pads and air mattresses should be packed inside or securely fastened to your gear bag. Pack lightly and efficiently. We recommend a large backpack or duffel bag, not a suitcase. Be sure to pack your clothing and sleeping bag in plastic in case of rain. Remember, you’ll be carrying this from your tent to the gear trucks. Please be certain your belongings are carefully labeled with your name and phone number.
