News & Events

Welcome to the 2016 Greater Baltimore Kidney Walk!

Kidney Walk is the nation's largest walk to fight kidney disease. Held in nearly 100 communities, the event raises awareness and funds lifesaving programs that educate and support patients, their families and those at risk.

Why walk?

With the increase in diabetes and high blood pressure -- two major kidney disease risk factors -- kidney disease is on the rise. We’re working to reach the 73 million American adults at risk with important prevention messages before it's too late.  Each year, more than 100,000 walkers join the NKF to raise millions of dollars to help kidney patients and their families. Your participation in our events has never been more critical.

More than 80 cents of every dollar donated directly supports our programs and services, including:

100,000 walkers are on the move across the nation! Get in step with us as we move kidney disease, a top ten public health problem! 26 million Americans with kidney disease are counting on us, so we need all the help you can give!

Let’s move on kidney disease…Register today!

Dialysis Center Challenge

The Dialysis Center Challenge is a competition between dialysis centers to increase awareness for and participation in the Kidney Walk.  The goal of the competition is for each dialysis center to try to raise the most money for the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland.  You and your team members can register online and keep track of your competition – how much money you have raised and how many team members you have recruited!  The winning center will be announced at the Walk and will be rewarded with a trophy that they will be able to display in their center. Please contact your Walk Manager for more information.
