Walk for Kidneys


Chicago, Illinois

June, 2015

More details coming soon!

Time: Check-in and Health Fair open at 9:00am, Walk steps off at 10:30am
Walk Distance: 5K (3.1 miles)

Join more than 3,500 walkers from all across Chicagoland for a three-mile walk along beautiful Lake Michigan! Walk for Kidneys is a day for patients, friends, family members and supporters to come together for one common cause: to improve the health and well-being of people at risk for or affected by kidney disease through prevention, education and empowerment.

Registration is free and all are welcome! We ask walkers to fundraise by asking friends and family to sponsor their efforts. Proceeds raised will directly support the crucial programs and services provided by the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois - programs that help people affected by or at-risk for kidney disease throughout Illinois. Your generosity and support of the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois is what makes these programs possible.
