The National Kidney Foundation of Illinois (NKFI) is proud to be an official charity partner in the 2014 Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon Race Weekend. Race weekend activities include a full marathon, half marathon, wheelchair half marathon, marathon relay, 10K and 5K.
When you sign up to be a member of Team Kidneys you are registering for marathon events and are making a contribution to the National Kidney Foundation of Illinois. Members of Team Kidneys will be gathering before and after the races in the NKFI designated location, with the KidneyMobile serving as the center of an exciting and educational event gathering place. Team Kidneys members will share race experiences, enjoy refreshments and celebrate the day’s results. Team wear will further bond the group as we work together toward a common goal - putting an end to chronic kidney disease.
