Come Walk with Us!

Or run, or simply come to encourage participants and give your support. Our annual Kidney Walks are a great occasion for the kidney community to get together, meet old friends and make new ones, and raise awareness about kidney disease.

Kidney Walks are organized at different times of the year in communities across the country. Visit our Kidney Walks page to find a walk in your area and sign up!

Why Am I Walking?

A few years ago when in his mid-twenties, our son Benoit found out he had a degenerative kidney disease that would ultimately force him to go on dialysis and have a kidney transplant.

This whole episode made me realize that we often take things for granted, when in reality there are no guarantees in life. But more than that, I discovered the importance of medical research and support for patients as they struggle through their ordeal.

Farewell Old Friend

Spring cleaning is here: Out with the old, in with the new! If the time has come to get rid of your old car, don't send it to the junkyard - give it to Kidney Car instead!  You'll get a free tow, a tax receipt, and you'll help people living with kidney disease.

We take vehicles of any age or condition! So, if you have an unwanted car you need to get rid of - give it to Kidney Car!
