First time sponsor steps up to nourish Kidney Marchers and Crew   

Canada’s largest agriculture equipment dealer, Rocky Mountain Equipment (RME), has joined the Kidney March family, signing on as a major sponsor for Day Two of Kidney March 2018. RME heard about Kidney March from James Maxim, a trailblazer marching for his third time this year. “This is a great match between Kidney March and Rocky Mountain,” says James. “RME has always invested in the communities it serves, and will be a powerful ally in helping us spread the word about kidney disease.” RME will feed hungry Marchers and Crew on Day Two, sponsoring lunch in K-Country, and a pit stop in Bragg Creek.

Otsuka shows its support

Otsuka carries on Kidney March tradition, supporting the Day One lunch stop … and marching themselves!

For the 4th year in a row, Otsuka employees are rolling up their sleeves to sponsor the lunch stop on the first day of Kidney March. André Mumme, Otsuka’s Manager of Stakeholder Relations, says supporting foundation fundraising events like the Kidney March is part of our company’s DNA. “Our customers have come to understand that Otsuka is in a class of its own. They recognize that our company has a unique culture and a big venture approach,” he says. André notes the Japanese company with a Canadian headquarters in Montreal is involved in activities that are meaningful for the community. “Otsuka employees share a unique and tireless passion to help enhance the health and quality of human life around the world.” Otsuka is also the national sponsor for the Kidney Walks Canada-wide.  André himself certainly does ‘walk the talk’, participating as a first time Marcher this year!

Kidney Marchers, be prepared to be spoiled at camp!

Thanks to the amazing support of Mattamy Homes the shower rooms will again be transformed into a spa-like oasis.  It’s Mattamy’s rejuvenating gift for our exhausted marchers and crew at the end of each day.  In addition to the shower rooms, Mattamy staff will also sponsor the last Pit Stop at the top of Canada Olympic Park, lending a helping hand as triumphant Kidney Marchers cross the finish line.

Kidney March welcomed Mattamy Homes to the Kidney March family last year and we are thrilled they are joining us for 2018. When Mattamy Homes was considering one more charitable opportunity in the Calgary area, Kidney March was just the fit the company was looking for.
