More than $5,300 was raised at Stratford's 5 km charity walk Sunday in support of the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
The money supports the 10,000 families in Ontario that are affected by the disease by providing much needed funding for education, patient programs, advocacy, and research.
Close to 100 people participated, many dialysis patients and transplant recipients, their families, living donors, and members of the medical community.
Over 40 communities in Ontario held similar events recently. This year's goal was to raise $850,000.
