The National Kidney Foundation of Michigan wants to thank you so much for your past participation in the Greater Lansing Kidney Walk and the Grand Rapids Kidney Walk.
As we look back over the past two years, it’s evident how much the pandemic has changed the way we fundraise, offer programs, and help those most in need. As we look ahead to the best ways to continue our work, it is clear that we need to change our strategy for fundraising in this new time.
Because of this, we have decided to no longer hold the Greater Lansing Kidney Walk and the Grand Rapids Kidney Walk. We truly appreciate your support of these two Kidney Walks over the years.
You can still support the NKFM by joining the #1 Kidney Walk in the country, in person on Sunday, May 15 at the Michigan Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo. With more than 4,000 walkers expected, food, games, prizes, plus the animals, it is a wonderful place to have a great time while raising money for a good cause.
Want to walk but prefer to stay closer to home? Participate in the Michigan Kidney Walk at the Detroit Zoo virtually on the same day by joining walkers from across the state online. The NKFM wants to embrace connecting with all walkers across Michigan. So, for the first time ever, our Walk Opening Ceremony will be broadcast live online for anyone to view. If you have family and friends who are unable to join us at the Detroit Zoo for the Michigan Kidney Walk, let them know they can still register and fundraise at kidneywalk.org/detroitzoo, and join us virtually by checking out our opening ceremony on May 15! The virtual event will also feature stories from people like you who are raising money for the NKFM and sharing how kidney disease has touched their lives.
