For the fourth year in a row, Team Will – an amazing team of family and friends – ran the Chicago Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon July 19th to raise money for NephCure. The first year the team consisted of 11 close friends and family. Every year the number of runners have grown, as well as the funds raised and increased community support. This year we had over 70 runners for Team Will and NKI raising more than $25,000.
Everyone got into the act, funds came not only from online personal donations, but also corporate sponsors, community lemonade stands, cookie sales, cupcake sales, a CrossFit fundraising event, a birthday party donation jar, etc.
“As we are learning, this is a very unpredictable disease, and we do not know what the outcome will be for Will. We are grateful to have found NephCure Kidney International, and with them are committed to seeking a cause and cure for Nephrotic Syndrome.” – Tony and Mary Ann Diaz
We’d like to thank our event sponsors: Physician Anesthesia Associates, Martin Nissan, Lydon & Associations, Hollister, MK Capital, Blue Mountain Brewery and Little Bad Wolf.
There’s still time to donate to Team Will at support.nephcure.org/chicagornr.
