a global effort
for everyone, everywhere
In honor of the 1.2 million Illinois residents who are estimated to be battling kidney disease, every year the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois joins with healthcare organizations and advocacy groups to speak on behalf of kidney patients, living donors and those at-risk of developing the disease. This day of exercising our civic rights is focused on raising awareness of issues relating to kidney health, and welcomes new supporters from all corners of Illinois into our fight.
