With the help of some incredible friends, I have met my original goal, and had the courage to increase my goal to $1000. Thank you for your support. It is with extraordinary excitement and joy that I will participate in Kidney Action Day. Help me pass on the word about the American Kidney Fund and about organ donations.
Why we are Taking Action
One in eight U.S. adults has kidney disease and 90% don't even know it. I will be walking in the American Kidney Fund's Kidney Action Day Walk 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 in the United States. This year, we 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, will help fund the programs that provide financial assistance to people living with kidney disease.
