Last week, I was incredibly pleased to be there to support participants in the annual Stittsville Kidney Walk. Over $10,000 in funds were raised and the campaign continues forward in full momentum. I would like to thank Marianne and Bill Graham and their team for organizing it as well as the United Church, Reverend Grant Dillenbeck and Ruth Richardson for helping and their continued support over the years.
There is a great need for organ donations in Ontario and walks like these are incredibly important in both funds raised for research and the awareness they provide to residents.
If you missed your opportunity to participate in the Stittsville Kidney Walk, there is still time to register for the Ottawa Walk taking place at City Hall on Sunday, September 25th.
The Ottawa Walk runs from 8:30-11:30. Registrants can earn prizes as well. Raise $100 or more and receive a Kidney Walk t-shirt; Raise $1000 or more and become a Kidney Walk Champion.
To register, or for more information, please visit the Walk page here. You can also contact volunteer, Bruce Hill at 613.724.9953 ext.4560.
