On Friday, I had the opportunity to stand up in Parliament and raise awareness about the Kidney March and the great work that the Kidney Foundation of Canada does.
The Kidney March through Kananaskis Country is a 3-day, 100 km walk to help raise funds and allows the Kidney Foundation of Canada to contribute funding to research, organ transplant programs, and services for those with chronic kidney conditions.
An estimated 2.6 million Canadians have kidney disease, or are at risk. Members of my family including my wife and my two oldest kids are affected.
I encourage all Canadians and residents of Calgary Shepard to join me in Kananaskis country for the 2016 Kidney March.
