The yard sale will be on 3/11/17 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. @ 1546 E. Main Street Dothan, Al 36301. All proceeds will go to the Alabama Kidney Foundation.
Currently in Alabama, over 400,000 people suffer from kidney disease and 8,000 patients are on life-sustaining dialysis with about 275 kidney transplants being performed each year. Alabama ranks 5th in the nation for the occurrence of kidney disease. This chronic illness is rampant in Alabama, particularly among African-Americans. Many patients live at or below the poverty level due to its devastating effects. By participating in the annual Kidney Walk, you can raise money for the AKF’s three programs provided free to Alabama’s kidney patients in need-financial assistance, education, and support services.
Last year, the Alabama Kidney foundation provided assistance to thousands of kidney patients in need for daily living needs like medication, high utility bills, handicap equipment, and treatment related transportation. The Kidney Walk also funds the annual Stocking Stuffer Project, public awareness, and patient education programs of the AKF.
