Catwalk for Kidneys - Rochester

#BillsDad and Mom have always been passionate about their team, the Buffalo Bills. But they are even more passionate about their family. A year ago, their family rallied around their daughter, Olivia, as she selflessly underwent surgery to donate one of her kidneys to her friend, Julia. Now, Julia is bonded as another #BillsDad and Mom honorary daughter. The surgery was a stunning success and Olivia and Julia have been teaming up ever since in support of others that are still struggling in the kidney community.

#BillsDad and Mom are working on some new moves to bust out as they strut their stuff on the Catwalk.  They hope to raise awareness as well as motivate their friends and “Bills family” to donate to a cause that is very near and dear to their heart. 

Did you know:

The average time on a kidney waiting list is nearly 4 years. Nearly 5,000 people on that list die each year; while nearly 36,000 are added to it. It's estimated that if 1 out of 10,000 people would donate their kidney, there would be no waiting list.

See you Sunday. Go kidneys.
