1 in 7 Americans have been diagnosed with kidney disease. Which means it is highly likely that someone you know may be affected by this debilitating and possibly fatal disease.

You can show your support for those fighting with kidney disease by attending this year’s Village Sidewalk Stroll on Saturday, Oct 7. This event will take place at Lindsey Park in the Village of East Davenport and will benefit the National Kidney Foundation.

Beginning at 9:30 a.m. family-friendly activities will take place in Lindsey Park. A short, non-competitive walk along the sidewalks in the Village of East Davenport will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Registration and donations can be completed online at https://team.kidney.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.event&eventID=534. If you have any questions or for more information, contact Erin McKenrick at mckenrickfamily@gmail.com.

You can follow the National Kidney Foundation- Iowa & Nebraska on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/NKFIowa/ for up-lifting stories and future fundraising event information.
