THANK YOU FOR TUNING INTO THE WEST COAST KIDNEY WALK CELEBRATION!  WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO ALL OUR WALKERS, DONORS, SPONSORS AND VOLUNTEERS FOR MAKING THIS YEAR A SUCCESS! 
 

We invite you to walk your way in the 2021 Northern California Kidney Walk.

This year, we are breaking down all the geographic boundaries of the past to form the first ever West Coast Kidney Walk!  On Oct. 3, thousands will unite across California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington to improve the lives of people with kidney disease and those at risk everywhere.

Together we will celebrate the 2021 Kidney Walk by uniting San Francisco, East Bay, and Silicon Valley into the Northern California Kidney Walk. The combined region will virtually bring together walkers from all of Northern California; Fresno in the south, to the Sacramento Capital Region, and all the Bay Area communities from Gilroy to Sonoma. 

LaceUp your walking shoes and join us from the comfort of your home, neighborhood or local park. We may not be able to unite in person, but our different paths share a common goal; together we’ll LaceUp to change lives.

By participating in the 2021 Northern California Kidney Walk 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.

ARE YOU IN?

How do I walk virtually?

We may not be together, but we’re 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.
  • Walk your way: take your own walk around the neighborhood or at your local park on Sunday, October 3, 2021. You can even track your steps with our Kidney Walk App.
 
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, October 3rd 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, October 3rd, ask your friends and family to donate ($5) – your creativity is the limit!
