2012 Give the Gift of Life Walks | Ontario

It’s about providing a better future for kidney patients. One step at a time.

We raised over $700,000, one step at a time.

Over 1000 participants took steps in September to raise awareness and funds to support The Kidney Foundation of Canada's mission. The Give the Gift of Life Walks are the largest community fundraising event in Ontario dedicated to raising funds for innovative research, vital programs and services that support people living with kidney disease.

Event photos will be posted in the coming weeks. Click here to visit our Ontario photo gallery and select your community to see familiar faces.

A number of walkers have doubled their walk fundraising simply by asking their employers to match their fundraising dollars. If you are unsure if your workplace offers a Matching Gift program ask your manager, or search for your employer on this database.

Congratulations to our Grand Prize winner - Jason McAdoo of Kingston - the new owner of an Apple iPad and Early Bird Prize winner – Tracy Buchenauer of Windsor – the new owner of an Apple iPod Touch!
