NKF Kidney Walk

Since there wasn't a Nephcure chapter when I moved to Minneapolis, I signed up for the local NKF (National Kidney Foundation) walk.  The NKF has a very active chapter here, and I wanted to make sure that I stay involved.  Nephcure is finally starting a chapter here (more details to come, as I'm involved in that too ;).

I wrote back in June about my meeting with Kristin and Breanne, but I kept forgetting to sign up for the walk.  Well, Breanne contacted me again with a gentle reminder, and here I am now, soliciting you to help me reach my fundraising goal.  It's only $1000, which is a much smaller goal than I had with the Nephcure walk in Indianapolis, but I also had lots of friends at Eli Lilly that were very generous in their donations.  Now that I'm not there bugging people, my fundraising efforts have lagged behind.  So I'm asking you...friends, family and anonymous readers, to help.

Here is a link to my team page:  Team FSGS Sucks.

For anyone that's local that wants to sign up and walk with me, PLEASE do so!  The walk is Saturday, October 13, so mark your calendars!!!  Thanks so much for all of your kind words and support ;)
