Georgia & Alabama
Thank you to everyone who came out to Turner Field on May 31st!! We had an excellent turn out and raised over $200,00. The dollars raised are already hard at work funding programs and services right here in Georgia. We sincerely appreciate all you have done to fight kidney disease and increase awareness for organ donation.
The Kidney Walk is the nation's largest walk to fight kidney disease. Held in nearly 100 communities, the event raises awareness and funds lifesaving programs that educate and support patients, their families and those at risk. We will announce the 2015 walk schedule in October 2014.
