Of course, we challenge all the racers to take on our 100-kilometre March this September once they recover from this weekend!👏Thank you to our fantastic team of volunteers for their boundless positive energy and the race organizers for hosting us! If you plan to participate in the marathon next year, sign up to race as part of the Charity Challenge and choose The Kidney Foundation of Canada. Plus, let us know so we can cheer you on.

Kidney March
Milestone announcement from Canadian Blood Services today! 1,000 kidney transplants have been facilitated thanks to the Kidney Paired Donation program. These 1,000 transplants represent 1,000 people who may not have otherwise received a transplant, or who may have waited a much longer time for a transplant from the deceased donor waiting list.Join us in celebrating 1,000 lifesaving connections made possible by the Kidney Paired Donation program! The Kidney Paired Donation program is run by Canadian Blood Services in collaboration with living donation and transplant programs across Canada. Thank you to health-care professionals, living donation and transplant programs and most importantly the generosity of living donors who made the selfless decision to donate their kidney for a loved one or for a stranger.
