Description:

We want to organize a 3K in order to promote a healthy lifestyle and educate the community on kidney disease.

Purpose:

The Purpose of this project is to engage the community in a 3K event while promoting kidney disease awareness.

Conclusion:

REACH Kidney Care of Spartanburg, South Carolina, held our first 3K Family Fun Run on August 10, 2019. We had tables set up to educate the community on kidney disease. We also had a transplant center representative there to answer questions, as well as a former dialysis patient who is now a fitness expert. In attendance, we had 2 kidney transplant recipients. One of those recipients came through our REACH Kidney Care program. Along the 3K trail, we had various signs that displayed kidney disease facts. Once the participants completed the course, they were able to enjoy refreshments and drinks. A bubble station was also set up for the younger guests to enjoy. There were also goody bags available that included educational information as well as great prizes for each participant to take home.  We had a great time getting to know new faces in our community.
