iPad Mini’s. Win 1. Give 1.

Here at Kidney March, we think building a movement this B-I-G is pretty remarkable but, let’s face it, we may be a little biased. Luckily for us, we have hundreds of alumni and their heartwarming testimonials to back up our claims. So, you could almost say it’s a fact. Jack.

And, here at Kidney March, we also know that just like awkward group photo’s or exploring Space Mountain, Kidney March is further sweetened by sharing with a someone special. So, in an effort to get everyone and their families, besties AND their BFF’s in this fight together, we have an idea.

Until April 30th, 2013, each and every person who registers to join us for Kidney March as either Marcher or Crew will be entered to win not one, but two (yes, two!!) exclusive Kidney March iPad Mini’s. One for you and the extra iPad Mini for a loved one of your choosing. All registrations must take place no later than 11:59pm April 30th, 2013 to qualify for the contest.

The goal? To get as many people in this fight as we can. To rally together to raise the boldest flag humanity has ever seen in the fight for kidney disease and the appeal for organ donation.

To all the folks already on board this year, no worries. You’ve already been entered in the draw. And, we admire your keenness.

To the folks sitting on the fence about whether or not to sign up for Kidney March on September 6th through 8th — why not join us? Not only will you get to enjoy the experience of a lifetime with some of the most inspiring people on the planet, but you may even be 2 iPad Mini’s richer.

You can register right now at: www.kidneymarch.ca or call 1.866.9KMARCH.

P.S. – Kidney March Expo is April 28th at Fort Calgary. Open to everyone and completely free. The place to be to find out all you need to know about Kidney March. You can find out more or RSVP here.

Why Marching Should be a Team Sport



May 23, 2012


“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”


The ranks of Kidney March are a varied sort. We have the rugged individualists, marching for the cause, eschewing human contact as they strive for their personal bests. We have social butterflies, making new acquaintances with every step and stretch. We have those who stroll, curiously taking in every leaf, bird, and cow on the road.

But, however powerful our marchers are alone, teams are where it’s at. Here are a few reasons why you should turn Kidney Marching into a team sport:

You’ll be reminded of the “why.” Why the heck would I walk 100 kilometres in 3 days? Why did I sign up for this? When your brain starts heading down that treacherous path, your teammates will be there to get your mind back in the fight, back on those you love (like the “Nephrodisiacs“, or “In Memory of Nash“), back to those who make this commitment every year (like the Kidney Sisters), and back on track.
