What is Kidney March Expo?

In short, it’s a little taste of inspiration, adventure and heroism to kick off Kidney March 2016.

Everyone is welcome. It’s for people deciding if this is their year to join in the fight against kidney disease. It’s for every new Marcher and Crew member. And it’s for Kidney March Alumni, those returning Marchers and Crew member who have gotten hooked on the experience of the weekend and being a part of the fight.

Let the wave of Kidney March embrace you as you join in the planting of the boldest flag humanity has ever attempted in the fight against kidney disease and the appeal for organ donation. You can do this… and it all starts with Expo.
