You did it! Whether you participated for yourself, a loved one, friend or just to get exercise and support a great cause—thank you for participating in the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland’s Kidney Walk events. We realize that Walk day is only the final step in a long process of soliciting support, but your hard work has paid off—across the nation we’ve raised over $9 million to fight kidney disease this year alone!
Kidney disease is a devastating disease that 1 in 3 Americans are at risk of developing—that’s a staggering statistic. Kidney disease often has no symptoms, it can go undetected until it’s too late. The National Kidney Foundation is working to change all that – all to ensure our community is educated. Through our most ambitious project to date, CKDintercept®, we’re working to improve early diagnosis, reduce preventable kidney disease and its progression, and help move our nation away from a healthcare system based on sickness and disease and towards one based on wellness and prevention. Your support helps make all of this possible!
Through our national awareness campaigns and advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill to our patient and professional education programs, helplines and local kidney health screenings offered free around the country, your efforts directly impact the 26 million Americans suffering from kidney disease.
Locally the National Kidney Foundation of Maryland offers robust programs, patient services and outreach in the community. The Walk events are critical to our continued success. To that end, our fundraising efforts continue – please help us close the gap to raise the nearly $80,000 needed to achieve our goal! Donate today through June 30th at www.kidneywalk.org. Thank you for your support and for sharing our message with your family and friends! We can’t do this without YOU!
Thank you for supporting our mission, and thank you for being part of our team. See you next year!
