Grand Rapids Kidney Walk

You are here

The 2021 Virtual Grand Rapids Kidney Walk will be held on Sunday, August 22nd.
While we are disappointed that we cannot gather together at Millennium Park, we look forward to hosting a program that spotlights the fight against chronic kidney disease in our West Michigan community. Check back for details on our program.

Get registered and begin fundraising today – Please note that we have a brand new registration site, so all previous walkers will have to create a NEW login for this year only with a unique email.
Please email Brian Christy with any questions – [email protected]
How do I walk virtually?
We may not be together, but we’re united by our belief in the need for better care and longer lives for kidney patients – for YOU and the ones you love.
  • Register today to start fundraising. Families facing kidney disease are counting on all of us to keep fighting in the year ahead.
  • Personalize your kidney walk page: document your kidney disease journey or tell us why you walk to inspire your personal network to support you with a gift before Walk Day.
  • Get creative: check out the Walker Toolkit on for easy ways to have fun, maximize your impact and reach your goals.
  • Walk your way: take your own walk around the neighborhood or at your local park on Sunday, August 22, 2021. You can even track your steps with our Kidney Walk App.

What if I’m sheltering in place or social distancing?
Your health and safety continue to be our number one priority. If you’re staying inside, there are still many ways you can participate and raise critically needed funds.
  • Tune in to our Walk Day Celebration on Sunday, August 22nd to get a front-row seat for our walk-day activities.
  • While others walk outside, join us in staying healthy by climbing the stairs in your home, doing jumping jacks or pushups for every dollar you raise to support kidney patients by walk day.
  • Not feeling physical? For every book you read, healthy meal you make, or ounce of water you drink on Sunday, August 22nd, ask your friends and family to donate ($5) – your creativity is the limit!

90% of proceeds from the Walk go directly to our programs such as Kid’s Camp, Emergency Fund, Enhance Fitness, and many more.

All walkers raising $100 or more will receive the official 2021 Kidney Walk t-shirt.

Thanks for all you do to support the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan.
