EVENT: San Francisco Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Jul 26, 2015
Dear Friends and Family,
I will be running in The San Francisco Marathon half marathon as part of the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) Team Kidney.
I’m proud to be taking the fight against kidney disease to the finish line with Team Kidney. As a nephrologist, I believe in NKF’s mission to increase awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease. 73 million Americans are at risk for developing kidney disease – 1 in 3 people. NKF is making great steps in furthering awareness for earlier detection so fewer people feel the burden of the disease. I hope that you will consider joining me in this fight by making a donation to my SF Marathon fundraising efforts for NKF.
I appreciate your support and will be thinking of you as I run 13.1 miles on Sunday July 26th!

The National Kidney Foundation is the leading organization in the U.S. dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease for hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals, millions of patients and their families, and tens of millions of Americans at risk. 26 million Americans have kidney disease and nine-tenths of them do not know it; 1 in 3 are at risk for developing it. Support Team Kidney in taking the fight to the finish line with a gift of any size.
