From kidney stones and urinary tract infections to prostate cancer and chronic kidney failure, diseases of the kidney and urinary tract affect over 70 million Americans each year.
The Kidney & Urology Foundation of America, Inc. holds numerous public education campaigns annually to raise awareness of the critical need to address these illnesses. Our ultimate goal is to take all kidney and urinary tract diseases from treatment to cure, and to see that no one ever has to wait for lifesaving medical care, particularly organ transplants.
How can you help combat kidney disease and prostate cancer?
DONATE YOUR FEET!
WALK the WALK is a fun way to help the Kidney & Urology Foundation of America raise awareness of the importance of organ and tissue donation, prostate disease, and other devastating kidney and urologic diseases. The money you raise goes directly towards research, patient services, and public and professional education. By simply joining us for a weekend morning stroll, you can help save lives.
Here are the highlights:
- A starting line celebration including free food and beverages
- A chance to earn terrific prizes
- A beautiful day out with friends
- Exercise for both your health and the health of others
By participating in WALK the WALK, you'll come away with the satisfaction of knowing you did something great for a lot of people, and maybe win additional bonus prizes!
