National Kidney Month and World Kidney Day 2024

March is National Kidney Month and Thursday, March 14th is World Kidney Day

Proclamations declaring March Kidney Awareness Month have been submitted to a variety of cities and towns throughout the Dakotas as well as the State of North and South Dakota. Many local landmarks and buildings will change their lighting to orange to celebrate World Kidney Day. Join us LIVE on the NKF Dakotas Facebook page at 7:30 PM on Thursday, March 14th to celebrate our Light the Night Orange event and raise awareness for the 37 million adults in the US living with kidney disease. Wear orange on World Kidney Day and encourage your friends, family, and co-workers to join you! Share photos on social media with #GoOrangeDakotas. If you don’t have social media, email your photo to Chris Arbach and we will share them on our Facebook page!
