BENEFITING: National Kidney Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jun 19, 2016
As some of you may know for the last several years I have been treated for IGA Nephropathy. There is presently no cure, though research continues to find one. For now I have been taking medication to keep the condition within reasonable limits. However anyone with this condition faces the prospect of kidney failure requiring dialysis and even transplant. Additionally the condition predisposes a person to increased risk for heart attack and stroke. To aid in the search for a cure, I am preparing to take on the Mt. Snow, Vermont Tough Mudder on June 19. These last few months I have worked towards the goal of completing the 12 mile obstacle course. I simply ask that you contribute what you see fit to the National Kidney Foundation on my behalf.
