FUNDRAISING 

Fundraising is an important aspect of our Strut Your Kidney - a dash for NW Kidney Kids. Funds raised help NW Kidney Kids continue to provide prevention services, educational programs and group activities that empower Kidney Kids to take charge of their health, embrace their future, and achieve lifelong success.

We invite you to set up your own Personal or Team Fundraiser when registering to participate in the event, or through our DONATE link at the top of this page. You can create a unique Fundraiser Name and URL address, personalize your fundraising message, and direct your friends and family to your page to join your team or sponsor you in your fundraising goal. Please share #whyyourun and #whynwkidneykidsmatters

What should my team goal be? We encourage each team captain to recruit 4 more team members and set your goal at $1000 per team. If 5 members raise $200 each then you hit your goal! The beautiful thing about this type of friend raising is that micro-donations add up to a large number that will have a huge impact on children and families in our community.
