My father Steve Lutz unfortunately lost his long time battle with chronic kidney disease January 2019. He fought a courageous and exhausting battle with kidney disease for many years. This campaign is very important to me. It goes beyond just walking in his remembrance and walking for my close friends and family members still fighting this disease. I hope that with the support of others we can raise money to support the research of kidney disease with hope that one day we will be able to spare others of the heartbreak of losing a loved one to kidney disease.
