Kidney March
💧Tips from Dr. Josip! - Hydration!👍Is drinking fluids important with physical activity? Definitely! Excessive sweating during exercise produces losses of body water and related minerals; these should be replaced during and after exercise. One should drink water both during and after a workout or exercise session.👍Do we need to drink more water when it’s hot? Yes! Physical activity and exercise in hot weather increase the body’s water requirement. Extreme conditions increase fluid needs five or six times above normal requirements.Kidney March volunteer Dr. Josip Batinić with Momentum Health wants to make sure you are set up for success in this heat! Want to talk to him about training and injury prevention at a complimentary biomechanical assessment for Kidney Marchers? Contact the Kidney March Team and we will connect you with him.

Over the next couple of months, hundreds of dialysis patients from all around Alberta will start their annual Kidney March Summer Exercise Challenge! They are creating awareness for kidney disease, plus building a community of support.Kidney March is proud to have partnered with the patients and renal staff in this program since the first year of Kidney March. Instead of walking for three days, they will bike during their dialysis treatments and track other activities over the following months leading to the march this September. Doing the most they can do. We can't wait to celebrate where their journey takes them.To donate to the patient team's efforts, check out their page at: kidney.akaraisin.com/ui/kidneymarch2024/t/PatientsProgram2024 ...
