The National Kidney Foundation of Louisiana's (NKFL) 17th annual New Orleans Kidney Walk is set to kick off from Audubon Park's Newman Bandstand Shelter #10 on Sunday, November 11, 2018. More than a thousand people are expected to step up for the event to raise awareness of kidney disease, organ donation, and the importance of early screening and a healthy lifestyle for those at risk.
The Kidney Walk invites dialysis patients, organ transplant recipients, donor families, living donors, the medical and business communities, and the general public to participate in an inspiring, community-based special event while raising funds for the programs and services offered by the National Kidney Foundation of Louisiana (NKFL).
Check-in for the Walk begins at 8:30AM and the non-competitive two-mile walk begins at 10:00AM. There is no registration fee; however, participants are asked to purchase a $5 food ticket to partake in the delicious food options that will be available. The Walk will feature a Wellness area, children's activities, entertainment, drawings, and more. To register, visit www.kidneywalk.org or call 504.861.4500 for more information.
