National Kidney Foundation Fundraiser
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.
Why I am Fundraising
In 2022, I got the news that my head lacrosse coach, Jen Muston, has Chronic Kidney Disease. This broke my heart because to my team, our coach was healthy, athletic, and showed no signs of having any health problems. Jen is now in need of a kidney and is currently in the process of looking for the perfect match.
I am starting this fundraiser to raise awareness for this incredible cause with the goal of helping my coach and others who are going through similar experiences. Jen has made a huge impact in my life and I am proud to be a part of Kidney Moves in honor of her and in hopes of raising money for the National Kidney Foundation. Join me in making these advances possible by donating to my efforts!
Thank you so much for your support!
