Kidney Walk a success

Red Deer and district’s third annual Give the Gift of Life Fun Run and Walk for the Kidney Foundation of Canada raised more than $53,000. About 150 people participated in the Canada-wide event held recently at Great Chief Park. The top fundraising team at the five-km run and two-km walk was Carter and Mason’s Crew, which brought in $12,000. Funds raised go towards increasing awareness about organ donation and to help ensure more Canadians receive life-saving transplants.
