Don't KID With Your KIDNEYS
Why I am Taking Action as Team Captain?
I am very passionate about helping others and am walking to bring consciousness to my family, friends and associates, about this silent killer, kidney disease. About 1 in 8 adults have chronic kidney disease (CKD); approximately 31 million Americans. Nine out of ten people with the condition do not know they have CKD.
As an employee of the American Kidney Fund (AKF), I observe with great interest, our organization?s dedication to its Mission: "Fighting kidney disease through direct financial support to patients in need, health education and prevention efforts." I am therefore requesting your financial contribution to my walk team to enable me help AKF continue to live true to its Mission and accomplish its Vision: "Envisioning a world without kidney disease; working to achieve a nation in which kidney patients have access to the health care they need, and one in which there are fewer people with kidney disease."
