2021 Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo

We invite you to walk your way in the 2021 Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo.

The National Kidney Foundation of Michigan is thrilled to announce that registration is open for the 2021 Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo! Please note that this is a brand new registration site, so all previous walkers will have to create a NEW login for this year only with a unique email. Please visit here to learn more about our new registration site.
This year’s walk will look different than previous years, with the highest importance placed on the health and safety of our supporters. However, the spirit and celebration of fighting kidney disease together at the Detroit Zoo, will be stronger than ever! More information on walk day will be shared in the months ahead. In the meantime, please contact NKFM’s Brian Christy at with any questions

By participating in the 2021 Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo you’ll let others know they’re not alone.

Caring knows no distance; no matter how or where you walk—one simple step can change a life.



What do I do next?

We are united by our belief in the need for better care and longer lives for kidney patients – for YOU and the ones you love.

  • Register today to start fundraising. Families facing kidney disease are counting on all of us to keep fighting in the year ahead.
  • Personalize your kidney walk page: document your kidney disease journey or tell us why you walk to inspire your personal network to support you with a gift before Walk Day.
  • Get creative: check out the Walker Toolkit for easy ways to have fun, maximize your impact and reach your goals.
What if I’m sheltering in place or social distancing?

Your health and safety continue to be our number one priority. If you’re staying inside, there are still many ways you can participate and raise critically needed funds.
  • Tune in to our Walk Day Celebration on Sunday, August 15th to get a front-row seat for our walk-day activities.
  • While others walk outside, join us in staying healthy by climbing the stairs in your home, doing jumping jacks or pushups for every dollar you raise to support kidney patients by walk day.
  • Not feeling physical? For every book you read, healthy meal you make, or ounce of water you drink on Sunday, August 15th, ask your friends and family to donate ($5) – your creativity is the limit!
