team kidney events

about the programs

our mission in action

Team Kidney events are community-run fundraisers organized on behalf of the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois. These incredible efforts allow their hosts to put support the NKFI through unique and creative outlets. Team Kidney events can easily be set up through our on-line giving platform, which makes it easy for you to collect funds, spread awareness, and enlist your friends and families into the fight against kidney disease, 


The passion of #TeamKidney members like you is at the core of all our work. Whether a #TeamKidney event raises $100 or $1,000,000, at the end of the day every effort adds up, and together they make an incredible impact in the lives of patients and families battling kidney disease
