The Derby Dash Run/Walk is a community-building event and an opportunity for individuals and families to raise awareness about the importance of kidney health and the lifesaving treatments of dialysis and transplantation. Whether walking, running, volunteering or cheering, this is a great community event and a chance to meet those impacted by kidney disease or organ donation.                                                        

All funds go to support the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin and their programs and services for patients and families in Wisconsin. More details can be found at www.kidneywi.org
