Kidney March 2019 Our 10th Anniversary! September 6th - 8th, 2019

3 Exhilarating Days - 100 Kilometres - K Country to Calgary

Kidney March is THE kidney event of the year. It draws people from across Canada to gather for the experience of a lifetime in September. For 3 days and 100 kilometres, we join forces against kidney disease. Families, friends, doctors, nurses, social workers, and people living with kidney disease, come together to do the most they can possibly do for kidney disease and organ donation. They march with hearts made heavy by the burden of illness and feet made light with the hope of early diagnosis, better treatment and a cure. To date, Kidney March has raised nearly $7 million to support kidney disease prevention, research and organ donation initiatives.

Worried about fundraising for Kidney March? Wondering how to train for 100 kilometres of walking?  Come to our For Your Inspiration (FYI) session: 2019 dates TBD but call us and we will do one just for you!
 Get all your questions answered in one night!

Join us at Kidney March Expo on Sunday April 14, 2018 at 10 am at the Delta Calgary South. Go to our Facebook page for more details, and follow us first in your newsfeed to stay in touch!

For those of you reading this, and still thinking about signing up for Kidney March, we understand you may have some questions. Everyone does. Visit to get pumped about our weekend of a lifetime supported by the most inspiring, kidney minded folks on the planet.
