2022 Michigan Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo

We are excited to be walking together once again for the 2022 Michigan Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo and we hope you walk with us!

By participating in the 2022 Michigan Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo you’ll let others know they’re not alone. Together, we’ll come together with a common purpose and walk for those who can’t. Caring knows no distance; one simple step can change a life.

Getting started is the same as 2021!

  • Register today to start fundraising.
  • Personalize your kidney walk page
  • Get creative: check out the Walker Toolkit for easy ways to have fun, raise money and make a difference in someone’s life.

ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSES ON THURSDAY, MAY 12 AT 5 P.M. After the online deadline, you will be able to register for the Kidney Walk in person at the Detroit Zoo beginning at 7 a.m.

 Each walker over the age of 12 is slated to raise at least $50 in order to offset the cost of admission ticket, entertainment, parking, etc. Walkers age 3-12 are asked to raise $15. Walkers 2 and under are free.

COVID-19 Alert

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, May 15, 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.
