Team Kidney - 2022 Chicago Marathon supporting National Kidney Foundation of Illinois
Team Kidney - 2022 Chicago Marathon

About the Cause

Your support helps us provide resources and programs like our KidneyMobile screenings and Living with Kidney Disease & Transplantation to the estimated 1.1 million Illinois residents living with or at risk for developing chronic kidney disease.  Additionally, you are helping to fund four different research grants available to medical students, young investigators, fellows, and innovators. 

YOU are making a difference and helping us change the face of kidney health in Illinois!

The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois is proud to be an official charity partner of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Every year, marathon organizers put aside a limited number of slots for athletes committed to running in honor of philanthropic causes, and when you run on behalf of the NKFI, every mile you put behind you will raise money for free health screenings, community programming, and cutting-edge research.


As a member of Team Kidney, you'll have access to our online giving platform, renowned trainer Seth Kopf, an NKFI fundraising coach, and exciting Team Kidney incentives. Best of all, you'll have the entire NKFI community cheering you on.
