Next week marks 12 weeks to Kidney March. Not sure where to start or continue with your training? Download the 12 week training plan at kidneymarch.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/12-Week-Training-Plan.pdf and use it to help guide you.

Kidney March
Need a creative way to fundraise! Do you have a good relationship with a local business? The Team IV Life is a great example. They are hosting "Pints for a Purpose" on Saturday, June 8 at Tavern 52. They will have a 50/50 Draw and silent auction items. Think about businesses you're connected to, and see if they could team up! Maybe it is your mechanic, a bakery, a tour company, or more. Not only is the business doing a great thing to help you fundraise, but they will get the tax receipt for their donation to the cause. For more ideas and our fundraising toolkit visit: kidneymarch.ca/fundraising/ Did you know we can help you set up a lottery license to host your own 50/50 draw?
