KEEP® Early Detection Screenings
The National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP®) offers free screening for those at risk - anyone 18 years and older with high blood pressure, diabetes or a family history of kidney disease. It is designed to raise awareness about kidney disease among high risk individuals and provide free testing and educational information, so that kidney disease and its complications can be prevented or delayed.

National Kidney Foundation Announce New Partnership
Ambit Energy and Texas have formed this partnership to help you save money on your electricity bill, and to raise funds for NKF. Ambit Energy has a strong commitment to community service and support of non profits and schools. By switching to Ambit Energy from your current provider, NKF earns revenue each month. The amount of money that NKF earns each month depends on your kilowatt hours consumed.
Camp Reynal began serving the North Texas pediatric kidney patient population in 1992. The camp is held early each summer at Camp John Marc in Meridian, TX, which was built specifically for children with chronic illnesses. Children ages 8 to16 with chronic kidney disease (about 120 campers) are eligible to attend Camp Reynal. Unlike most summer camps, Reynal is equipped to take care of children who require daily medication, special diets, and medical treatment such as dialysis. The camp offers an educational and recreational experience for children in the kidney population, providing them an opportunity they cannot receive elsewhere. Children participate in activities such as horseback riding, swimming, ropes course, hiking, fishing, art, and camp fire sing-a-longs. More Info
