Why I Walk
I walk for the 37 million Americans with chronic kidney disease. I walk because the National Kidney Foundation is a lifeline for them.
When Logan was diagnosed with nephrotic syndrome-minimal change disease in 2013 I didn’t think I knew anyone with kidney issues. But as I became involved with NKF I learned about the incredible job our kidneys do for our bodies each and every day. And I discovered I knew people who struggled with chronic kidney stones, kidney infections, kidney cancer, IgA nephropathy, FSGS, and kidney issues due to complications from diabetes.
There are worthy charities everywhere you turn, but this one is important to me because 1 in 3 Americans are at risk for kidney disease and I bet you know one or more of them.
NKF is leading the way in advocating for kidney patients and providing resources to doctors and individuals on early diagnosis, preventative measures, clinical trials, treatment options, and living donor programs. All money raised for the Wilmington Walk benefits the local DE/MD kidney community.
Won’t you join me in supporting NKF? Donate to my walker page and help me reach my personal goal of raising $3,000 by October 24. Every donation will help us meet the walk goal of $35,000.
