Hello Beloved Family and Friends:
I am walking for my Mom...
Why I am Taking Action
Many of you know that my mother is fighting chronic kidney disease as a result of Type II Diabetes. She goes to dialysis three times a week, this truly is great blessing to her overall care and quality of life. However she must continue this treatment as long as she lives. Did you know that one in eight U.S. adults has kidney disease and 90% don't even know it. Many people are unaware that kidney disease can be prevented, which is why I am participating in the American Kidney Fund's Virtual Walk. I will join the American Kidney Fund in an effort to make sure our family, friends and colleagues are all aware of this silent killer. We are working together in fight against kidney disease by creating awareness and helping to raise money for programs and services.
Join us in Taking Action
Last year, the American Kidney Fund provided assistance to 1 out of every 5 dialysis patients. This year, Virtual Walkers will be walking to raise money and awareness for those living with kidney disease. You can join me in the fight against kidney disease by supporting my personal fundraising efforts. Your contribution, whether it is $20 or $2,000 or whatever amount you desire to give, will help fund the programs that provide financial assistance to people living with kidney disease.
My goal during this individual endeavor is to walk five to ten miles a week for the entire year! Thanks in advance for your donation and support.
Stay Blessed and at peace.
