Show Kidney Patients You've Got Their Back
The Kidney Foundation's “Walk the Block” in Kelowna - and all across Western Canada - will be held this Sunday, June 7th. Yes, it's different this year because of COVID-19.
The Kidney Walk campaign always brings together patients, their friends and families, health care workers, researchers, and the public to honour and celebrate everyone impacted by kidney disease and organ transplantation. While this year’s Kidney Walk community won’t physically meet, the celebration will go online using Facebook Live at https://www.facebook.com/KidneyBCY/
By encouraging people to join the online event and walk their blocks this Sunday, participants can gather (virtually) and still be part of the celebration while adhering to provincial and territorial health directives.
We had the great pleasure of chatting with Brenda Dondo, Manager of Community Initiatives with the Kidney Foundation, about how they've been managing through these days of COVID :
