About This Activity

My Kidneys Run/Walk promotes awareness of kidney disease and organ donation, providing a chance for the kidney community to come together. The event is managed by Next Level Sports and features a 5K run/walk and 1 mile untimed walk. The event takes place on a flat, paved trail in Root River Parkway South on a spring morning where you may even pass turkeys or a fox along the way!

All funds go to support the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin and their programs and services for patients and families in Wisconsin. More details can be found at #MyKidneysMKE
