Why: To support life-saving National Kidney Foundation of Illinois programs and services. Team Kidney/Tony's Team was created to honor the life and memory of Tony Noel. Tony lived a short 37 years, during which he fought a valiant battle with kidney disease. Even with the difficulties he endured with years of dialysis and 3 kidney transplants, Tony did wonderful things with his life. Tony’s third transplant came from a family who respected their young adult’s wish to become an organ donor upon his death. This gift of life gave Tony the best ten years he was to know. During that time, he married and fathered his two children.  He had an irreverent sense of humor and an irresistible love of life, which endeared him to his large cadre of friends. Tony died in September of 1997, but his vivacious spirit lives on in those individuals with whom he came in contact during his life.
