NKF Golf Classic

NKF Golf Classic

The road to Pebble Beach starts at Champions Golf Club on March 26, 2018! The NKF Konica Minolta Golf Classic is the nation's Premier Amateur Golf Event for Charity. Each year thousands of golfers from across the country participate in over 30 events across the U.S. for the exciting competition and the chance to earn an invitation to the National Finals at Pebble Beach—while raising over $3.5 million for the NKF.

Champions Golf Club was founded by Jack Burke, Jr. and the late Jimmy Demaret in 1957. From its origin, Champions has consistently carved its place in golf history hosting such prestigious events as the Ryder Cup Matches in 1967, the United States Open in 1969 and the Champions International, a PGA tour event.

For more information about this event, visit our website, or contact Jenny Moore at Jennifer.Moore@kidney.org or at 214.351.2393

Camp Reynal

Camp Reynal

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 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. More Info

Become an NKF Ambassador

The National Kidney Foundation's new NKF Ambassadors program was developed to raise awareness among the general public and individuals at risk for kidney disease by educating them about kidneys, risk factors for kidney disease, and how to protect your kidneys.

  • Inform your community about Chronic Kidney Disease risk factors by attending or identifying health fairs and community events in your local area.
  • Educate your community about Chronic Kidney Disease by presenting "Your Kidneys & You" which is a brief overview about kidney function and how to prevent kidney disease.

For more information contact the National Kidney Foundation at (877) 543-6397.
