Important Update

South Carolina is undergoing a slow recovery from the devastating floods that have inundated our state in the last week. Recovery efforts have been slow, but the incredible spirit of volunteerism and community that has been apparent has been overwhelming and has lifted our spirits and belief in the goodness of others.

The National Kidney Foundation believes in this spirit of volunteerism but also in the spirit of helping our communities and each other. After much discussion we feel that is in the best interest of our community to postpone the Orangeburg Kidney Walk to March 10, 2016 (which is World Kidney Day). The Charleston Kidney Walk will now take place on March 13, 2016 and the Midstate Golf Classic has been rescheduled to March 21, 2016.
