Welcome to Michelle's Kidney March Fundraising Page

Your Support Means the World to Me


I am retiring this June and wanted to do something special, challenging, rewarding and out of my comfort zone to celebrate this event. After much thought, I have chosen to participate in the Kidney March on September 7th, 8th and 9th, 2018. It will be a challenge, but I am excited for it. I am training in preparation of marching 100 km (in case you want to join me for a walk this summer - training partners are also very welcome). But I need your help. My goal is to raise a minimum of $2,200. Please sponsor me.

The Kidney March is a 3 day, 100 kilometer walk to raise awareness and funds for kidney disease and organ donations. I will be walking through the beautiful Kananaskis country for three days (possibly encountering bears, deer, elk, etc).  I will also be sleeping in a very small tent inside the sleeping bag my son Dean received for his Grade 12 graduation in 1994. So yes, definitely out of my comfort zone.


Kidney disease is a leading cause of death in Canada and is called the silent killer.  One in 10 Canadians has kidney disease. Most of us have a family member or friend or know of someone who has this disease. In our family, my beautiful granddaughter Brooklyn has to have yearly monitoring of her kidneys and my lovely niece Jennifer is dealing with kidney issues also. Daily 15 people are diagnosed with kidney failure. There is no cure and without treatment (dialysis or transplant) kidney disease is fatal. Over 76% of Canadians who are on the transplant waiting list are waiting for a kidney.


I am hoping you will consider making a fully tax-deductible pledge to help me reach my goal for this worthy cause.


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.
