Thank you to our Team Kidney runners for completing 13.1 miles at this year’s Love Run on behalf of the thousands of kidney patients right here in the Delaware Valley!

If you missed out on the run, there is still time to join Team Kidney this year! We are an official Charity Partner of the Philadelphia Marathon, and are looking for 8K, Half, and Full Marathon runners to run on behalf of Team Kidney! For more information, click here or contact Mary Elizabeth.

 

Learn about "Your Kidneys and You"

Our new Your Kidneys and You 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. Reaching 73 million people is a huge task and one that can only be accomplished by utilizing trained and dedicated volunteers. This program is designed so that anyone can present it; a medical background is not needed. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Rachel.
