This year marks the 11th anniversary of the Kidney March Patient Exercise challenge, and Alberta Kidney Care patients and staff, in partnership with The Kidney Foundation of Canada, are keeping active and socially distancing as we come out of a worldwide COVID-19 pandemic!
In this “shorter” version of our annual exercise challenge, 8 teams of dialysis patients will combine their exercise and activity distances. The teams will track their mileage with each patient trying to achieve 100km in just two months! This will increase the challenge for those returning from previous years (when we had 3 months to achieve 100km).
This year we celebrate both of the dedication of our essential services and determination shown by our patients and their caregivers, during what has definitely been a challenging year so far! We are grateful for the dialysis bike programs being kick-started back up (after COVID-19 shutdown) and have learned of new and creative ways to be more active while maintaining social distancing! This year’s dialysis teams will work together to achieve their goals and improve their overall health and happiness.
