The National Kidney Foundation's 6th Annual Kidney Walk to Be Held on Saturday, October 13
Date:10/10/2007

rmoine was not a match, so she

decided to do a "Kidney Swap," that is to anonymously

donate her kidney in order to place her mother Jackie at

the top of the organ donation list.

-- Jordan Gray, who at just 20 years old, is dedicated to

increasing awareness of kidney disease and organ

transplantation. Jordan's mother Vivianne Pommier had a

kidney transplant and Jordan uses their experience as he

works to educate others, including students at Georgetown

University where he is currently enrolled.

-- Quandra Lee, a two-time kidney transplant recipient was

diagnosed with kidney failure at age 17. Quandra spent time

on dialysis and received her first transplant from her

mother, Gillian Bates, when she was 19. After 10 years, her body

rejected the kidney and she received another kidney, donated by

her brother-in-law Tony in February 2002.

Walkers can register online by visiting the National Kidney Foundation's website, http://www.kidneywdc.org. In addition to the registration capabilities, walkers can use the online tools to build their own fundraising web pages quickly and easily. Every walker who raises $100 or more will receive a Kidney Walk t-shirt and other prizes will be available for top fundraisers.

The Ronald D. Paul Companies, Inc. has generously offered to match funds raised up to $50,000 by individual walkers, walk teams and corporate sponsors. Other sponsors include Davita, Hunton & Williams, Georgetown University, Washington Hospital Center, Pacers Running Stores, Kidney Kids, SportsTalk 980, Chipotle, and Porter's Dining Saloon.
