On behalf of the Kidney Foundation of Canada, Red Deer and District Unit, I would like to thank everyone who helped make the second annual Cruisin’ for a Kidney held on July 30th a huge success.

I wish to acknowledge our corporate sponsor, A & W on Willow Street, for its continuous commitment and support to our foundation. Thank you to Mark, Brandi and the entire staff for making this a fun and successful event.

I also wish to recognize our hard-working and dedicated volunteers.

Thanks to the radio stations and newspapers in the area for promoting our event.

This event was coordinated with the Rock’n Red Deer Cruisin the Dub Welcome Party and brought families, friends and colleagues together from Western Canada and beyond to raise funds to ensure the Kidney Foundation of Canada can continue to fund research; generate awareness of the importance of organ donation, and assist individuals and their families living with kidney disease.

Only 14 out of every million Canadians donate their organs. Canada rates among Third World countries when it comes to organ donation.

By choosing to become an organ and tissue donor you can help improve these statistics by signing your donor card or the back of your Alberta Health Care card.

Your decision will make a difference in the lives of up to 80 people.

Please talk to your family about your wishes as ultimately they will make the final decision.
