Congratulations & THANK YOU

Kidney March 2021!

You continued to fight united against kidney disease and for organ donation, no matter what 2021 brought our way. Your determination and commitment to making a difference in the lives of kidney patients and their families was heroic. It is because of you that Kidney March 2021 exceeded every expectation we had. Thank you!

Together we put kidney disease and organ donation on the virtual map! Nothing stopped you, not even the second year of a worldwide pandemic, you marched no matter what. Doing the most you could do from all across Canada. You blew up social feeds and shared your journey with so many around the world. Your unwavering dedication resulted in Kidney March 2021 raising $826,500 to fund lifesaving research, improve patient outcomes, support patient programs and organ donation initiatives – and the donations are still coming in! Bringing our total to over $10 million to date. Share your Kidney March achievement loud and proud, you’ve made Kidney March history!

The relationships we have formed be they virtual or in person, go far beyond the Kidney March weekend. We welcomed 95 new heroes to the Kidney March family this year, and we will continue to celebrate our community of support all year long. Stay connected on our social pages, @KidneyMarch on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Join the Kidney March Training Walks Group, Kidney March Crew Group and Strava Club.

Save the date for the Kidney March Alumni Reunion on Saturday, October 23. We will unveil the Kidney March 2021 video and celebrate everyone who made this year outstanding – Marchers, Crew, volunteers, donors, sponsors, and loved ones.
