Carolina Nephrology Raises $10,000 for National Kidney Foundation

May 18, 2018 – Carolina Nephrology, a top provider for patient kidney care in Greenville, South Carolina, proudly raised over $10,000 through sponsorships and fundraising for this year’s Upstate Kidney Walk.
The walk was held on Saturday, March 10th at Furman University. In total, the walk generated approximately $60,000 to help fight kidney disease. Funds generated from the walk will be used to provide resources to administer free health screenings, host educational sessions, and support kidney research.

As a disease that shows few warning signs until almost all kidney function has deteriorated, education is a crucial aspect for its prevention. The walk encourages individuals in the Upstate with high blood pressure, diabetes, or a family history of these conditions to participate in regular screenings while generating support for kidney patients and other groups affected by the disease.
