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. I am joining hundreds of others as a united front against kidney disease.



I am walking for my friend Evan who I met 2 years ago. Evan is an intelligent, creative and positive young man who has developed a passion for curling. 

I am marching with Evan's mom Lindsay and for Evan's family who have welcomed my family with open arms and who put one foot in front of the other each and every day.  

I am marching for David Hall who I coached many years ago and who in his early 30s faced kidney failure.

Evan and David continue to inspire me with their humour and resilience in the face of their medical realities. I am grateful to know them.

On average, 15 Canadians are newly diagnosed with kidney failure every day.



I am training in preparation of marching 100 km. But I need your help. My goal is to raise a minimum of $2,200. Please sponsor me.



In supporting me, you are supporting The Kidney Foundation of Canada to carry out kidney disease prevention, lifesaving research, and organ donation initiatives. By being part of Kidney March I am part of Canada’s biggest effort to date to improve kidney health. How? The Kidney Foundation is a founding partner in Can-SOLVE CKD, a Canada-wide research initiative featuring 18 projects and a $40 million investment into kidney research. Now in its second year, Can-SOLVE CKD represents the largest investment into kidney research in Canadian history. Patient volunteers helped shape the research questions, and are still involved as research progresses. The Kidney Foundation has pledged $3.35 million to make this transformational research possible. By supporting me, you are supporting this groundbreaking initiative in which Kidney Foundation donations are matched by federal and provincial governments as well as private partners.



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.
