The New Orleans Kidney Walk is Sunday, November 6, 2022 at the Shrine on Airline in Metairie. Join the kidney community as we gather together again to fight kidney disease and spread awareness about organ donation.
In Louisiana, kidney patients and transplant recipients have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our patients are at higher risk for contracting COVID-19 and the virus is responsible for causing acute kidney failure in some patients, therefore creating a rise in the number of patients accessing our services. The NKFL continues to provide vital services to patients and families and your generous support directly funds these efforts.
The Best Part…
Getting started is the same no matter which option you choose!
Your health and safety continue to be our number one priority. NKF’s staff, board of directors and healthcare advisors are closely monitoring the on-going Covid-19 pandemic. We are currently planning to host this event in-person on Sunday, November 06, 2022. Our safety procedures were created in accordance with state, local and federal guidelines. If a change to the current program needs to be made, we will provide you with detailed information on those changes and how we’ll be connecting the kidney community in that situation. Please Note: An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people with underlying medical conditions and older adults are especially vulnerable.
By attending an NKF Event, you acknowledge and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
Let’s have fun and help keep each other healthy.
