Why We WalkWe walk in memory of Barbara Hanselka. She lived with kidney disease for years before going on dialysis full time in 2010. She managed with dialysis but it was very difficult and time consuming for her, as many of you may know. She spent a lot of time in the hospital and ultimately passed away on August, 17th 2016.
This year, our team has joined others throughout the country to fight against kidney disease. On November 06, 2021 we’ll walk for our loved ones, colleagues or friends who cope with this devastating chronic illness each day – and for those who lost their fight too soon.
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.
