Members of Team Kidneys will be gathering before and after the races in the NKFI designated location, with the KidneyMobile® serving as the center of an exciting and educational gathering place. Team members will share race experiences, enjoy refreshments, celebrate the day’s results, and will receive a team t-shirt (if you fundraise $100 or more).

Meet your athletic goals and fundraise for the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois!

Did you know that 1 million people in Illinois have kidney disease? The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois is working across the state to prevent people from developing kidney disease, educate people about kidney disease, and empower people to take their health into their own hands. In 2013, our signature KidneyMobile® provided nearly 5,000 free screenings across Illinois and was funded in part by money raised through last year’s marathon team members. This year we need your help again!

To create an online fundraising page, simply visit and click “Fundraise for this campaign.” You will be prompted to create a personalized page where you can share your story and ask family and friends to make a donation. For more information on how to sign up, click here.
