“We are excited that once again WashU Nephrology will be represented at the NKF Kidney Walk!” says Koeller.  “It is a great opportunity for us to engage with our kidney community and support the work of the National Kidney Foundation. We have some energetic walkers already registered and are grateful to have received our first few donations!”

The NKF provides support and education to patients with kidney disease.  More than 83 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to support programs and services.  To learn more about the annual event, visit their Why We Walk page.

“This year we will also have a booth on Vendors Row so be sure to come by and say hi on Walk Day.”
