Jenny's Warriors are Mums and Dads, grandparents, brothers and sisters, and aunts and uncles. They are our family, friends and neighbors from all walks of life who are fighting the Kidney disease battle together. Anyone can be a Warrior, and on Saturday March 28th, we invite YOU to join our warrior family for some awesome fun, great food and vital fundraising!
We are so excited for the 7th Annual Kidney Foundation Fundraiser Luncheon. All the money raised goes to The Kidney Foundation of Canada, which exists for the enhancement of kidney health and the reduction and, if possible, the elimination of the burden of kidney diseases. The primary beneficiaries are people at risk of, or affected by, kidney disease.
