Alpha Kappa Alpha Pairs Up with the American Kidney Fund in the fight against kidney 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 have Paired Up with the American Kidney Fund in an effort to make sure our family, friends and colleagues are all aware of this silent killer. Through a dynamic partnership, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is helping the American Kidney Fund raise awareness of kidney disease and its risk factors through health and education-focused activities.

Join us in taking action...

Our partnership with the American Kidney Fund has provided us with a chance to highlight our commitment to service and raising awareness of kidney disease. Last year, our chapters in Washington, D.C., San Antonio, Houston and Atlanta provided many volunteers and helped raise money for prevention and awareness efforts! Many AKA members also took advantage of the free health screenings available during Kidney Action Day. This year, we will once again join the American Kidney Fund to raise money and awareness for those living with kidney disease. You can join us in the fight against kidney disease by joining your Chapter's 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.

Choose Your Walk

The upcoming Kidney Action Day Walk is in Houston (November 17). Register today and don’t forget to let us know you’re part of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority on the registration form! If there’s not a Kidney Action Day Walk near you, you can  take part in the American Kidney Fund Virtual Walk—anytime, anyplace. Consider forming a team for your walk to help raise awareness of kidney disease in your community and raising funds to help kidney patients and millions of people who are at risk for kidney disease.
