Catching Joy is pleased to form a walking team for The National Kidney Foundation’s Kidney Walk through the Franklin Park Zoo on Sunday, May 16, 2010. The walk begins at 10:30AM and registration starts at 9:30 AM. Catching Joy will host a children’s activity table at the event. Catching Joy calls everyone especially families with young children to join our walking team. This is a fun, inspiring, community fundraiser which calls attention to the prevention of kidney disease and the need for organ donation. It’s also an opportunity for patients, family, friends and businesses to come together to support the millions of Americans with chronic kidney disease. Thanks to the money raised through the walks, NKF is able to offer free health screenings for kidney disease, public and professional education programs, advocacy to make patients’ voices heard through legislative action, and a vital research program to identify new clinical treatments.
Register at www.kidney.org and designate that you are walking with Catching Joy. Also, be sure to RSVP so you will receive more details about meeting and buying your Catching Joy t-shirt.
