Kidney March
This evening we are heartbroken to share the news of the sudden loss of a young member of our Kidney March family, Taran Kovacs. Taran was a long-time crew member and marcher. Most years you would find him flying around camp in a golf cart, shuttling marchers to and fro all evening with a big smile on his face. He was an all-around camp expert and always a huge help to the Camp Life and Luggage Crews. Taran meant so much to so many. Our hearts go out to his parents, Tina and Tom, who have been a big part of Kidney March for nearly 15 years, his brothers, all of his relatives, and his many friends, doctors, and nurses who developed a strong bond with him over the years.A Celebration of Life will be held in honour of Taran and we will share the details when they are available. ...

🌞Summer may seem far away, but we're already making plans for Alberta's Kidney Kids to go to camp and you could help. Right now, there's an opportunity for your donation to be doubled! Enjoying the outdoors and having fun with friends at camp is what being a kid is all about. Sadly, kids with kidney disease rarely get to go to camp due to medical and financial barriers, but #KidneyKidsCamp is special. It's a medically supervised camping experience provided at no cost to families through your generosity.Every dollar spent on Kidney Kids Camp is an investment in the growth and well-being of our kidney and transplant kids.Double your impact and change a Kidney Kids life this summer.🏕️LEARN MORE> give.crowdfunding.alberta.ca/KidneyCamp#KidneyKidsCamp #Alberta #KidneyFoundation #kidneydisease #Organdonation #CrowdfundingAlberta ...
