I'm excited to announce Team Paul will be back for a sixth year for the NYC Kidney Walk. And for the first time since 2019, this year's walk will be in person on November 13th in Foley Square! On April 26th, I was the lucky recipient of a kidney transplant. During my travels through hospitals, transplant clinics, and dialysis centers, I met so many great and wonderful people. When I was on dialysis, a co-worker of mine had a personal connection to Kevin Longino, the CEO of NKF. Once a week, Kevin would reach out to me, making sure I was okay and seeing if there was anything I needed. This is the personal touch this foundation gives to people in the community. I was lucky to have an amazing family, supportive friends, co-workers that had my back, great health insurance, as well as amazing doctors, surgeons, nurses and medical professionals. I recognize how lucky I was - please support this foundation so they can continue to help the people of our community in need.
Together, we walk to support the lifechanging work of the National Kidney Foundation:
- To ensure that families will have a place to turn when they need answers.
- To keep up the fight for policy changes to protect kidney patients and living donors.
- To drive innovation in transplantation and get more loved ones off the kidney transplant waitlist.
