Since 2008, Kurtis Krug has worked tirelessly with volunteers in Regina, canvassing routes and acting as a zone leader for the annual March Drive door-to-door campaign.

In 2013, as Branch President, he served on the National Board of Directors and contributed to the National Governance Committee, the National Nominating Committee, and the Selection Committee for the National Executive Director. He was instrumental in recruiting additional volunteers and other board members to the Saskatchewan Branch, and played a key role in the transition to a new governance model.

His unwavering support by participating in many events across the province, particularly every walk in Regina, has garnered Kurtis wide acclaim by colleagues and volunteers alike, especially for his willingness to accept any volunteer assignment.

Kurtis is a valuable volunteer and we wholeheartedly thank him for his contributions and achievements, all of which have had a profound impact on The Kidney Foundation of Canada.
