Dusk begins earlier and earlier each night, the CNE begins and the stores are jammed with eager or not so eager students preparing for another school year - all signs that the end of summer is in sight. We hope that you have had a great summer!
Hand writing volunteer opportunities

Fall is always a busy but really fulfilling time for us here at The Kidney Foundation, and we look forward to crossing paths with you at the Kidney Walk or one of our many fall events. As plans take shape, we are also looking to build on our team of fabulous volunteers. We now have a listing of current volunteer opportunities and we hope you will consider joining our dynamic team. The Kidney Foundation was built as a national organization over 50 years ago, and community volunteers are essential in order for us to fulfill our mission.
Kidney Walk is a family experience
"I think it's a nice bonding experience for the entire family. For my kids, it is important for them to be a part of something that I do,"

Meet Kidney Walk ambassador, Ruchi and her family, participants in our Mississauga Walk.
