Take a walk on the wild side for a great cause, to get involved in the fight against chronic kidney disease.
It’s National Kidney Month and from the walk to music and a scavenger hunt, the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii has planned several events.
Vice President of Philanthropy Jennifer Dotson talked about the various events happening on Living808.
The World Kidney Day celebration will take place on Thursday, March 14th at Ala Moana Center Center Stage.
There will be live performances by the Moanalua Symphonic Wind Ensemble in addition to free general kidney screenings.
The 4th Annual Walk on the Wild Side event is happening on Saturday, March 23rd between 11am – 4pm at Fort St. Mall & Chinatown.
The walk will culminate with the largest kidney screening of the year, live music entertainment, health education opportunities, keiki games, lion dancing, Taiko drumming, and the Historical Mystery Walk.
According to Dotson, “The Historical Mystery Walk is a leisurely self-guided scavenger hunt around the Downtown and Chinatown areas for people of all ages. Participants will receive a map when they check in at our tent on March 23rd and they will be instructed to find key locations around the area. Once done, they will bring the completed map back to our tent and receive a swag bag full of goodies!”
World Kidney Day and the 4th Annual Walk on the Wild Side are free events for people of all ages.
The Historical Mystery Walk is a fundraiser to get the word out about chronic kidney disease.
Individual entries cost $25, teams run $40.
