Welcome to Heather's Personal Page - Part of the Pea-nuts team
Your Support Means the World to Me

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

I am taking part in Kidney March - a 3 day, 100 km journey from Kananaskis to Calgary. This is more than just a walk. This is big. This will be my second 100 km walk but I'm bringing friends this year.  I am joining my brother and two of his friends to fight against kidney disease and our team is called the Pea-nuts.

Why? Kidney disease is personal. It affects 10% of the population, yet is seldom spoken of. Kidneys are two of the hardest working organs in your body. They remove waste and excess water, and control mineral and hormone levels. When your kidneys aren't functioning properly, it impacts every aspect of your life.

When diagnosed early enough, we can slow down kidney disease. Because you can lose 80% kidney function without any symptoms, many people don't know they have kidney disease until they are close to kidney failure. On average, 15 Canadians are newly diagnosed with kidney failure every day.

Kidney failure can be fatal. Unfortunately, it is a leading cause of death in Canada. And there is no cure.

On September 7th, 8th and 9th, I am participating in Kidney March. It will be a challenging, but I am excited for it. I think I will have better control of blisters this year - I have a new plan. I am training in preparation of marching 100 km (the key was not to stop training after the last walk). But I need your help. My goal is to raise a minimum of $2,200 and my team's goal is to raise $8800. Please sponsor me and my team.   

Thank you for taking up the torch on behalf of the millions affected or at risk. A kidney crisis is looming. The time to make a difference is now. Failure is not an option.

Cheers, Heather
