Louise Laviolette

Suffering from Polycystic Kidney Disease, the symptoms of irreversible kidney failure appeared in my fifties. My father also had PKD. I am now a transplant recipient and am so very grateful for the advances in research that have led to improved patient care. The Kidney Walk raises awareness of organ donation, which is so important to me.

Deena Backman

As someone who lives every day with Polycystic Kidney Disease I am so thankful for all of the amazing research that is being done to work towards a cure for kidney disease as well as all of the efforts of those in the community to help fund it. I have seen firsthand the effects of both fundraising and research and I am so thankful to be involved in it.

Craig Lindsay

I feel an obligation to the people who are going to be diagnosed tomorrow, next year and thirty years from now. They have a right to better treatments and I have a part to play in that. The Kidney Walk is a fun, engaging, active way to be a part of a bigger community.”


The Kidney Walk has always been important to me as a way to show support for those living with kidney disease and those who love them. Now, however, I am happy that I can walk as a kidney donor alongside my kidney recipient, my dad. Seeing him walk with renewed vigor and health will make the Kidney Walk special each year.
