Meet Chase's Superhero

Your Monthly News & Updates
kidney walk
With Ontario's Kidney Walks just a few short months away, our volunteers and employee teams have been reaching out and connecting with our veteran walkers. Time and time again, walkers identify that it is the feeling of community that really makes the walks so memorable. We hope you will join us whether you are a seasoned walker or this might be your first event - you are welcome and you will find a strong kidney community by your side.

Speaking of community, last week the Ontario Branch launched an Ontario-focused Facebook page. A successful page is one where the community helps drive the content - so please like us on Facebook and join the conversation online.

Kidney Walk Ambassadors Chase and Dana Share Their Story

While some children idolize their favourite hockey star, musician or comic book character, Chase has the welcome benefit of living with his hero. Last year, Chase had a successful kidney transplant after his father, Dana, volunteered as a living donor.

portfolio.
