New Jersey Walk The Walk

WALK the WALK for Organ and Tissue Donation
Jenkinson's Boardwalk, Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey

On Sunday morning, May 4th, we invite you, your family, your friends and your co-workers to join us as we take a two-mile stroll around Jenkinson's Boardwalk and help to save lives in the process. Our annual WALK the WALK for Organ and Tissue Donation is a fun and healthful way of raising awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation and how easy it is to become a donor. The money you raise will go directly to research, patient services, and public and professional education.

Sign in starts at 9:30 AM at the Bandshell. The 2-mile walk begins at 11:00 AM. Wear comfortable shoes!

Feel free to call the Kidney & Urology Foundation at 1.800.63.DONATE with your questions

Facts About Transplantation And Organ Donation

• 84,000 Americans die from kidney disease or conditions associated with kidney disease each year. Over 92,000 people in the United States need an organ or tissue transplant to save or drastically improve the quality of their lives
• 13 minutes from now a new name will be added to the organ waiting list
• RIGHT NOW over 6,000 New Yorkers are waiting for a kidney transplant
• Today, 17 people will die while waiting to receive an organ
• Becoming a donor is as simple as checking the organ donor box on the back of your license; or fill out an organ donor card and carry it with you
• You will never receive less than the best medical care because you have promised to donate your organs after you are gone
• By promising your organs after your death, you may save or improve the lives of as many as 80 people
• Each year, 10 to 14 thousand people who die meet the criteria for organ donation, but less than half are actually donors

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.
