The Kidney Foundation is organizing a Give the Gift of Life Walk beginning from Maffeo-Sutton Park, Nanaimo, on Sunday, August 9, 2009. The Foundation is seeking walkers and walking groups to join the to help raise awareness of the importance of organ donation and provide the money to make the work possible. Registration is at 9 am and the walk begins at 10 am. There will be live entertainment and refreshments for participants. This event is being held all over British Columbia but on Vancouver Island only Nanaimo and Victoria are participating. That’s one reason why the Kidney Foundation needs as many Nanaimo walkers as possible to sign up as soon as they can. They’re asking everyone to show their Nanaimo Spirit!
