It seems every organ and disease has its charitable foundation. The kidney is no different. The Kidney Foundation of Canada provides assistance and education for those dealing with kidney disease as well as supporting fundraising efforts for medical research into kidneys.
One way the foundation raises funds is by holding an annual “Kidney Walk,” in which walkers solicit donations on behalf of the foundation. I am doing that for the first time this fall on September 27, when the London, Ontario Kidney Walk takes place. I invite you to sponsor me to raise money for a great cause, making a difference for those who are living with kidney disease.
My personal goal is to raise $300. I pledge to contribute $0.50, to a maximum of $100, for every $1.00 you donate. That means, for example, if ten people donate $20 each, for a total of $200, I will add $100 to the amount for a grand total of $300.
