Welcome to the Catwalk for Kidneys page for Joe Yokajty!
My name is Joe Yokajty. I am a recently-retired mechanical engineer now finding lots of new and great ways to keep busy – biking, bocce league, speed skating, and attending music festivals to name a few.
I have had opportunity to volunteer as a mentor for the Webster High School robotics team as well as a member of the Technical Advisory Group at RMSC. I am currently a member of the NOTA Garden Committee looking forward to the upcoming growing season. I also enjoy volunteering for numerous yearly city events such as the Fringe Fest, the Ride for Pride biking fundraiser and the Fast Forward Film Festival.
I will UNlikely donate a kidney in the future - only because I was told that donating more than one kidney is not recommended :- ) I know, first hand, how rewarding kidney donation can be and how much impact one can have on a recipient’s life.
Is it extremely important to push for additional awareness about kidney disease and kidney donation? ABSOLUTELY! - that is why I chose to join my good friend Marie Clarcq on the catwalk.
You can purchase tickets to see Joe and Marie on the runway here!
