Your Support Means the World to Me

Kidney Disease is on the rise, affecting one in 10 Canadians.



This is big. I am taking part in Kidney March - a 3 day, 100 km journey from Kananaskis to Calgary.


Why? Kidney disease has become very personal to me. One of my co-workers; named Saad at DIRTT (who also happens to be Graham's boss) has had 2 Kidney transplants in the last 15 years. This has made my reasons for doing this simple.....it all begins and ends with Saad.

  1. I promised Saad last September that I would walk with him this year.  A promise is a promise, I can’t go back on it.
  2. I love to support any organization that helps with organ donation.  I have a niece that received a double lung transplant in 2002.  Our family was kept whole because of this donation and we will never forget it.
  3. Walking is the best way to get in shape and stay in shape.
  4. Kidney failure can be fatal.  Unfortunately, it is a leading cause of death in Canada.  There is no cure.
  5. I LOVE working at DIRTT and supporting my co-worker is another way to show my appreciation.


On September 8th, 9th and 10th, we will be walking from Millarville Race Track to Calgary Olympic Park. I am training in preparation of marching the 100 km. But I need your help. My goal is to raise a minimum of $2,200. Please sponsor me. 



Thank you for your support, I really appreciate it!  If you have any secrets on how to treat blisters, please share :)
