What is the Kidney & Urology Foundation of America

From kidney stones and urinary infections to prostate cancer and chronic renal failure, diseases of the kidney and urinary tract effect over 70 million Americans each year.

The Kidney & Urology Foundation of America conducts numerous public education campaigns each year to raise awareness of the critical need for organ and tissue donors. The Foundation remains dedicated to ensuring that every American in need of a lifesaving organ or tissue transplant receives one.

Our ultimate goal is to take kidney and urinary disease from treatment to cure, and to see that no one ever has to wait for a life saving transplant.

Walk the Walk would not be possible were it not for the generosity of our sponsors.We would like to thank all of our sponsors for their ongoing support and involvement.
