Why I Run 
Right now, 37 million American adults are living with kidney disease, and I’m not okay with that. I run because 1 in 3 people are at risk for kidney disease. I run because more than 1 in 7 people have it but aren’t aware.

I run to raise funds that support the National Kidney Foundation, who was the first to identify kidney disease as a distinct, treatable illness. They developed the staged system of kidney disease diagnosis and treatment – a worldwide standard today – and release and update treatment guidelines to improve patient care.

My family has been fundraising for the NKF for the past 19 years ever since my father, Steve, was diagnosed with Alport Syndrome in 2005. 8 years later, he was lucky enough to receive a kidney transplant from his wife and my mother, Rhonda. Our family has seen the impact that education and treatment can make for Kidney Disease patients at first hand, and know the importance of spreading awareness to others.

Join me in making these advances possible by donating to my efforts!

Thank you for your support!
