Pay it Forward - Walking n Strolling For Kidneys for the State of Texas Kidney Foundation
Well, this post is a week late, but I wanted to share with you all about the terrific time I had on Sunday October 23rd, 2011 at the Walk n Stroll for the Sate of Texas Kidney Foundation. Fellow Active Rainer Jerry Newman shared with us the opportunity to go out to the Pearl Brewery on October 23rd to do a Walk or Run for the State of Texas Kidney Foundation and I jumped right on board.
The kidney is an organ that is very important for filtering wastes and keeping our electrolytes in balance, (sodium and potassium). They also release hormones that are responsible for helping us maintain our blood pressure, produce those blood cells and maintain our calcium levels in our bodies. So, one could imagine what happens to a person when they have conditions that attack the kidneys...lots of bad stuff. I am quite sure you have heard of diabetes and Texas has the highest rate of diabetic end stage renal disease in the entire Nation! That is not a number we are proud of. Supporting the Texas Kidney Foundation raises money for education, prevention and support for organ donation which just happens to be their Mission Statement.
The Walk n Stroll at the Pearl Brewery provided some entertainment beforehand and had booths to educate people about the kidney foundation. They also did blood pressure checks, body mass index calculation (I stayed away from that booth) and blood sugar testing. As you can see, I took part in the fun and got my finger stuck...ouch! The good news is that my fasting blood sugar was 99 which means I am not yet at risk for diabetes. You want your fasting blood sugar to be between 80-110.
That day, I was able to donate $35 to help the support the State of Texas Kidney Foundation, got me a cool T-Shirt and got to walk with Jerry Newman for a mile for the cause. It was a lot of fun to get out in the nice San Antonio Texas weather and enjoy the stroll and support the cause.
