Sidney the Kidney - Fight Kidney Disease
Follow Sidney as he walks across America
|Join Sidney and our Facebook friends on a journey to prevent kidney disease. Sidney's Walk USA is a virtual event designed to bring all of our friends together to help spread the word about the prevention of kidney disease by reaching as many people as we can!
What's this about?One in nine American's have Kidney Disease. More than likely, somoeone you know is affected. You can help with a small donation or simply by spreading the word. Your contribution will make a difference and actually moves the barometer on the right side of the page, which is how Sidney is tracking his progress.
Why is Sidney Walking?
The awareness of kidney disease is growing, but we have more work to do! That's why Sidney wants to help. He will take a virtual walk to various cities to meet new friends and as he reaches a new city, information related to that city will be posted. You can access the city page by clicking on the the city in the map or by following the cities menu. Make sure to check back often as Sidney visits other cities. You can also post messages and share your stories. We want Sidney to make as many new friends as possible, and hear as many stories as possible!
What's our goal?
Our goal is simple! We are asking all of our Friends to support Sidney on his journey by doing two things - make a small donation and forward on to your friends and ask them to do the same. Let's keep Sidney moving! 26 million adults are affected by chronic kidney disease. How many in your network are affected?
But What About the Kidney Walk?Sidney's journey is meant to reach those that might not be participating in the kidney walk. Sidney still wants you to grab your friends, family members, neighbors, co workers and everyone you know to come out and support the kidney walk. But for those that won't be participating in the walk, they can still support Sidney on his journey and help us reach our goal of raising $60,000 for patient programs and services.
How will we reach our $60,000 goal - $5 at a time! We have more than 600,000 people in our "friends" network and we're counting on you to make it happen!
