The Kidney Challenge calls on people to speak up about kidney disease. Kidney disease is the ninth leading cause of death in the United States — killing more than breast cancer or prostate cancer. Yet it receives comparatively little attention. The Kidney Challenge seeks to change this.
The challenge is simple: speak up about kidney disease in one concrete way. Start a conversation. Send a tweet. Participate in a National Kidney Foundation event. In isolation, these activities may seem small. Collectively, they can make a significant difference — and save lives. Or, for maximum impact, you can do a bigger challenge that tests your limits.
Looking for another way to help? Make a donation today, and support critical kidney programs that provide education, community health screenings, direct patient aid, organ donation advocacy, and more. Every dollar truly makes a difference in the contonuation of these vital programs.
