Catwalk for Kidneys Presented by Macy's

Welcome to my Catwalk for Kidneys page!  I am so excited to be part of this great fall fashion show!  As you all know, I am a living donor, having given a kidney to my husband Ed.  I hope you will join me on October 28 at The Hilton Garden Inn as I walk to bring awareness to kidney disease and organ donation, and to raise funds for patient and community services right here in the capital region!

This year’s event is presented by Macy’s and as such, I and my fellow models will all be outfitted in the very finest of Macy’s fashions!  The show also includes a VIP admittance, silent auction, vendor marketplace, a fantastic brunch like only The Desmond can provide, and so much more!  The most important part of the show is that all of the models will be walking to raise funds to help those in the capital region affected by kidney disease and organ donation!  Funds raised at this event will help with:

  • Grants that provide direct assistance to patients for medical, nutrition and housing needs
  • School based programs that teach kids about lifelong kidney health
  • Community outreach and education, including a free kidney screening program targeted at underserved communities
  • Patient and family education that helps them cope with the complications of kidney disease
  • Clinical education that keeps healthcare professionals up to date on treatment
  • Scholarship programs for young adults affected by kidney disease
  • And so much more!

Your support ensures that these programs can continue and that we can respond to the ever increasing needs of the community.  Did you know that one out of every three are at risk for kidney disease?  That’s an astounding number, but with your help we can provide help and hope to those affected.  Please join my efforts by making a donation today!  You can also support me by purchasing tickets to attend the event!

Thank you for the support!
