It’s time for Chicagoans to lace up their walking shoes, as the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois (NKFI) hosts its annual Gift of Life Walk & Family Health Fair this June 27, 2010 at 9 a.m. beginning on the Soldier Field Great Lawn. Participants are invited to come out for a fun-filled day of live entertainment, refreshments, healthy living tips and a leisurely three-mile walk along beautiful Lake Michigan. An estimated 1,200 walkers will revel in the camaraderie and show their support, one step at a time. The walk is free, and those participants who raise $50 or more for the NKFI will receive a t-shirt. Proceeds will help the NKFI raise funds for the KidneyMobile® and free early kidney disease detection screenings.
Participants may register and raise funds for the Gift of Life Walk online at www.firstgiving.com/nkfi.
