NIOC Texas has been assisting the American Kidney Fund since 2011. That year, our team consisted of 3 volunteers. In 2012, we expanded our team to nearly 30 Sailors who want to end Kidney Disease and help those battling the disease. Please join us in our fight against this terrible disease.
Why we are Taking Action
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 we created a team to walk. We 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, we will be walking in the Kidney Action Day Walk to raise money and awareness for those living with kidney disease. You can join us in the fight against kidney disease by supporting our company team. Your contribution, whether it is $20 or $2,000, will help fund the programs that provide financial assistance to people living with kidney disease.
About Kidney Action Day
Kidney Action Day is part of the American Kidney Fund’s national initiative to increase awareness of kidney disease and its risk factors. Kidney Action Day includes a fundraising walk, free kidney health screenings, cooking demonstrations and fitness instruction -- the day is full of family-friendly and kidney-healthy activities.
