Walk on the Wild Side Success!
The Walk on the Wild Side was held on Saturday March 11th. The walk was intended to demonstrate the importance of regular exercise, like walking, for healthy kidney care. KITV's Jordan Segundo spent the morning highlighting all the exciting aspects of the Walk on the Wild Side event. Throughout the day, large numbers of people participated in all the events. A record number of people were screened for kidney disease, keeping our volunteers and staff busy all day long. By all accounts, the day was lots of fun and a success.
It takes a great amount of effort, resources, and time to put together an event like this. Many people and organizations have contributed to the success of this event. We want to take the time to thank our many supporters:
