The 12th annual Kidney Walk: a great mobilization of the renal community

The 2018 Kidney Walk was held in May, June and September in 25 cities across Quebec, where thousands of walkers joined forces for the kidney disease cause. This major event, which over the years has become a key activity for all Foundation supporters, raised $535,000 this time around. The funds will go toward research and patient programs and services, to give the thousands of people with kidney disease or those awaiting a transplant hope for better days.

This year, two new Walks born out of local volunteer involvement were added to the list of Kidney Walk events held across the province. The first-ever Gaspé Kidney Walk took place on Promenade Jacques Cartier on September 15, and on September 30 in Saint-Mathiassur-Richelieu, Foundation supporters gathered at Salle Pauline-Casavant.

The Quebec Branch of The Kidney Foundation of Canada would like to thank all the participants and local and national partners, as well as all the donors, who supported the 24 Kidney Walk events and the Tour de rein cycling event this year.

The Foundation would also like to thank the honorary chairs and volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the event such a huge success. Without their contribution, the Kidney Walk would not have been possible. See you next year!






will be held in cities across Quebec on various dates in May and June 2016.
