Volunteer at the OC Kidney Walk – Sunday June 2 with Stanbridge College REACH

Stanbridge College REACH invites you to volunteer at the Orange County Kidney Walk on Sunday, June 2, 2013 at Aldrich Park in UCI.

With obesity on the rise, more and more Americans are dealing with diabetes and high blood pressure – two main causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD). There are over 26 million American adults who have CKD and millions of others who are at increased risk. Because symptoms may not appear until the kidneys are actually failing, millions of people with kidney damage remain unaware and are not taking steps to protect the health of their kidneys.

The OC Kidney Walk is raising funds to help the National Kidney Foundation call attention to the prevention of kidney disease and the need for organ donation.

Volunteers are needed to help with logistics of the walk including checking-in walkers, taking donations, setting up stations, route marshaling and clean up.
