What is the Kidney Walk?

The National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Walk is a non-competitive, fundraising walk focusing on education and prevention of kidney and urinary tract diseases, and highlighting the need for organ donation. The Kidney Walk presents an occasion for dialysis patients, organ transplant recipients, donor families, living donors, the medical and business communities, and the general public to celebrate life and create lasting community advocacy and long-term support for the Foundation's mission. Walks are scheduled throughout the country from February through October. Click here for the latest schedule.

How is the money used?

More than eighty percent of every dollar raised for the NKF goes directly to support programs and services, including early detection, education, patient assistance, professional training and research.

NKF meets the extensive standards of the Wise Giving Alliance of the Better Business Bureau, America's most trusted charity evaluator. The Foundation has also received a Four-Star rating, the highest, from respected Charity Navigator.
