United No Matter What

Walk the farthest you have ever walked and raise the most you have ever raised to fight kidney disease and for organ donation. Join us for Kidney March 2022. We plan to reunite in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains for an unforgettable journey.

4 Million Canadians have chronic kidney disease or are at risk. Most people don’t even know until it’s too late. Together, we will march as one united front to make the biggest difference we have ever made and have a life-changing impact on all those affected by this devastating disease.
