Kidney Walk

Walk the Kidney Walk!

We've had an amazing year thanks to you!

Thank you so much to everyone who supported our September 28th Kidney Walk that was held at Waterfront Park in Louisville.  The event was a huge success with over 800 participants who helped us raise funds - and more importantly - raise awareness about CKD!

We look forward to hosting everyone again! Mark your calendars as the NKF Kidney Walk will return to Waterfront Park – Louisville on September 27, 2015!  For more information, contact the local office at (502) 585-5433 or email Nital Desai.
