Why We March

A crisis is looming

3.5 Million Canadians have chronic kidney disease or are at risk. Most people don’t even know, and won’t until it’s too late. In Southern Alberta alone, the number of people with kidney failure has doubled in the last decade. 76% of people on the organ donor list are waiting for a kidney. That’s why we invite you to join us at Kidney March.

There is no cure

Kidney disease is irreversible, and each year it kills thousands of Canadians. Kidney disease cases are predicted to double in the next ten years. Unless we stand up and take action, this silent disease will continue to take lives and livelihoods.

Kidney disease costs millions for our health care system, and it devastates individuals and their families. More than half of the people living with kidney disease in southern Alberta live on or below the poverty line. Entire families are impacted and it’s a lifelong illness.
