NKF Serving the Dakotas

National Kidney Month and World Kidney Day 2022

March is National Kidney Month and Thursday, March 10, 2022 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 10 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!

Woodgrain Brewery in downtown Sioux Falls has teamed up with the NKF and let us brew the Spare Beans Pale Ale. It will be released on Thursday March 10th at Woodgrain. Swing by for a taste test and some good food to kick off World Kidney Day!

We would also like to thank the following businesses for their partnership during National Kidney Month: Fit Body Bootcamp Sioux Falls, The Sandbar, Powerplate Meals, Motiv Fitness, Sandy’s Donuts Fargo, Flyboy Donuts
