Free picnic for locals with Chronic Kidney Disease

Dialysis Clinic, Inc. (DCI) is hosting a “Picnic with a Purpose” on Sunday, Aug. 2, from 4:30-8 p.m. at the Lyric Theatre and Cultural Arts Center, located at 300 East 3rd Street.

“Picnic with a Purpose” is a free community event offering people affected by kidney disease the opportunity to socialize and learn more about the disease.

There will be two educational presentations to offer the community insight into kidney transplantation. Attendees will be entertained by a comedy presentation, and later, participants will be encouraged to get active with a DJ-hosted dance. There will also be a photo booth, where special moments from the event can be captured.

DCI staff has spent the past few weeks eagerly preparing for this event.

“We’re really excited about it,” said Rebecca Baker, Dialysis Clinic, Inc., RN. “We are delighted to offer a fun and entertaining environment where people with kidney disease can share common experiences and learn more about kidney transplantation and available community services.”

Vendors including the Kidney Health Alliance of Kentucky (KHAKY) and Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA) will also be at the event to highlight their available services and to discuss the early identification of kidney disease.

DCI is providing free food and transportation support for the event.  Advanced registration is required. For more information, please call DCI Lexington at (859) 252-7712.
