The event is an effort to raise funds to build a new, much-needed Children’s Nephrology (kidneys and dialysis) Clinic for children in the community. All the proceeds are going towards the Caring for Little Kidneys Campaign, spearheaded by Tim Blevins, President of Reid’s Heritage Homes, and his wife Charlotte. The new Nephrology Clinic will cost approximately $650,000 to build, so donations of any size are welcome and appreciated.
When the Blevins’ daughter, Kayla, was nine years old, she suffered from a serious E. coli infection that led to kidney failure. Her life was saved at the McMaster Children’s Hospital. This hospital is the only place in the region that can offer pediatric dialysis services, and the Blevins are aware that more space and equipment are needed to treat many other children in the area that are suffering from kidney related issues.
Can't attend, but want to support the cause? Donations can be made at the Caring for Little Kidneys Campaign page. Donate here.
