The National Kidney Foundation of Florida Announces
The 2018 Miami Kidney Walk at Historic Virginia Key Beach
(Miami, Fla.)- The National Kidney Foundation of Florida (NKFF) is revving up for the 2018 Miami Kidney Walk being held Sunday, March 18th at 10:00am on Historic Virginia Key Beach Park. The “free” walk is a fun, and inspiring community fundraiser that’s not just about kidney disease, but about people with kidney disease coming together, united in one cause: to celebrate life and each other. The Kidney Walk is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness of kidney disease and funds to support lifesaving programs for patients, their families, and those at risk. The 2018 Kidney Walk fundraising goal is to reach more than $100,000!
The Miami Kidney Walk route is like no other, the adventure trail is about 3 miles long, surrounded with lush green plants, eco friendly exotic wildlife and a beautiful shore line. Come walk or hike for a great cause and then stay and barbecue right on the beach.
More than 26 million Americans (1 out of 9 adults) have chronic kidney disease, and most are not aware of it. Symptoms may not appear until the kidneys are actually failing. Millions of people with kidney damage remain unaware and are not taking steps to protect the health of their kidneys due to lack of knowledge and education.
The success of the Miami Kidney Walk relies on its sponsors, team captains and participants. It’s a great way to become involved in a worthy cause, raising awareness of kidney disease; building company camaraderie and enjoying a day out with family and friends. To become a corporate sponsor or a team captain, contact Zoe Plasencia at 305.965.8366 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit www.miamikidneywalk.org for more information.
