(Victoria Kidney Walk / Kidney Foundation of Canada)

The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s Kidney Walk is returning to Victoria next month, so it’s time to rally your family, friends and coworkers and join hundreds of other walkers in this nationally renowned event!

This year the 2.5 kilometer Kidney Walk Victoria is being held in Veteran’s Memorial Park in Langford on June 2nd, after making its way across the province for walks in many different locations.

There will be on site refreshments at the event, fun activities for kids, and even live music presented by The Stragglers Off The Street!

Every year, 15,000+ volunteers and participants gather at Kidney Walks in communities throughout the country to raise awareness and funds for those affected by kidney disease.

Patients, caregivers, medical professionals, family members, and other caring and compassionate individuals participate in The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s cornerstone fundraising event to help support innovative and ground-breaking research projects and to offer crucial programs and services to the thousands of people living with kidney disease.
