An estimated 2,000 participants took part in the annual Kidney Walk held Saturday at Turner Field in Atlanta. The event, sponsored by the National Kidney Foundation, raises funds to support NKF programs. According to Gary Renville, Division President in Atlanta, “more than 80 cents of every dollar raised is for services for kidney patients, their families, and those at risk.” The amount raised was not immediately available. The NKF Paint Atlanta Orange Gala in March raised $125,490.

Each lap of the walk inside Turner Field was 0.25 miles. Participants walked 1 lap or all 8 laps.
