The National Kidney Foundation of Florida (NKFF) is pleased to announce this year’s MIAMI KIDNEY WALK being held Sunday, March 26, 2017 at the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, 4020 Virginia Beach Drive in Miami, FL. The Miami Kidney Walk is a fun, inspiring community fundraiser that calls attention to the prevention of kidney disease and the need for organ donation. The event is an opportunity to create awareness and fundraise for the much needed funds that help assist those suffering from kidney disease and patients on dialysis treatment. Moneys raised support the many programs by the NKFF, such as Direct Aid and FREE community health screenings. These programs are only possible through the fundraising efforts of events like the MIAMI KIDNEY WALK and its Sponsors and Team Captains who come together to walk or run in honor of their family members. This year’s fundraising goal is to raise more than $94,000!

This year’s MIAMI KIDNEY WALK route at the Historic Virginia Key Beach is sure to be a fun and adventurous one! The trail is about 3 miles long, surrounded with lush green plants, eco friendly exotic wildlife and a beautiful shore line. Come walk, run or hike at the MIAMI KIDNEY WALK all for a great cause!

More than 26 million Americans (1 out of 9 adults) have chronic kidney disease, and most are not aware of it. Symptoms may not appear until the kidneys are actually failing. Furthermore, millions of people with kidney damage remain unaware and are not taking steps to protect the health of their kidneys due to lack of knowledge and/or education.

The success of the Miami Kidney Walk relies on its sponsors and team captains. It’s a great way to become involved in a worthy cause, raising awareness of kidney disease; building company camaraderie and enjoying a day out with family and friends. To become a corporate sponsor or a team captain, contact Dayane Nunez at 786.587.3354 or email [email protected]

The mission of the National Kidney Foundation of Florida is to prevent kidney and urinary tract diseases, improve the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by these diseases and increase the availability of all organs for transplantation.
