Green Ribbon walkers – Mount Pleasant, PA

Description:

Our project started off with most of the volunteers showing up pretty early to set up, we had everything from food, face painting, bounce house, games, prizes and alot of information all about ESRD. We had help from so many of DCI’s employees as well as The Vascular Access Center, and the Kidney support group showed up. We had a ton of DCI T-shirts to hand out to the walkers that showed up, and boy did they show up. We must of had over 100 to 150 walkers alone show up. And to top it off we had a lot of patients show up to help support this purpose project. Everyone had fun while getting some education on why learning about Kidney disease is so important and how it affects so many people. Parents brought their kids who enjoyed games, prizes, face painting, balloons and even a bounce house. While everyone enjoyed their time at our event our DJ played some music and kept the walk going. We had food, and deserts to go around as well as some protein jello, because we all know how important protein is to our patients. The YMCA was gracious enough to lend us their space for the day, and our local EMT’s showed up to help out. The event ended a little early due to rain, but everyone had a good time and learned a little something along the way.

Purpose:

To bring education to the community we are planning a walk with education and fun for all. We would have booths set up along the walk where people can learn all about kidney disease and what we do at our clinics. There would also be some extra fun with face painting baloons and some food. It would be like a festival all about ESRD. Bringing ESRD awareness with alittle fun. We are just hoping that people understand alittle more about it, and maybe even help those going through it as well.
