On September 21, let's WALK to support organ donation !



    MONTREAL, Sept. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - Thanks to the participation of Astellas
and Wyeth, The Kidney Foundation of Canada will hold a 5 km non-competitive
walk on Sunday, September 21 in Montreal, Three-Rivers and Quebec to support
people living with kidney disease and to promote awareness of the need of
organ donation.
    Come celebrate life by participating in this lasting community advocacy
and long-term support for the Foundation's mission. By doing so, you will walk
for nearly two million Canadians who suffer from chronic kidney disease, or
are at risk, and for more than 7,000 people in Quebec, who survive thanks to
dialysis or transplantation.
