Catwalk for Kidneys Presented by Macy's

Welcome to our Catwalk for Kidneys page!  We are so excited to be part of this great fall fashion show!  I am home dialysis patient and have been living with kidney disease and doing home dialysis for over eight years.  Chaiyanne and I hope you will join us on October 28 at The Hilton Garden Inn, in Troy, NY, as we 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, we and our 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 Hilton Garden Inn 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 under served 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 seven 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 purchase tickets to see me in the show! 

Thank you for the support!
