About Walk for Kidneys

The 2020 Walk for Kidneys is going VIRTUAL! 

September 13, 2020 

The Walk for Kidneys will be going VIRTUAL for the first time. While the pandemic has cancelled many important moments in our lives, our mission to walk strong for kidney health isn't cancelled, and neither is our Walk for Kidneys! We're inviting you to Walk Where You Are, because the people living with kidney disease need our support now, as much as ever. 


Walk for Kidneys is a family-friendly celebration of passion and progress. This annual event is an incredible opportunity for supporters of the NKFI to come together, show their spirit, and demonstrate their determination to make a difference in the fight against kidney disease.  Join other supporters of the NKFI mission for this festive three-mile walk, and help us win the race against kidney disease. With your assistance, we'll raise approximately $175,000 in support of research, public education, and patient services, and together we will make an incredible impact in the lives of patients and families.
