The National Kidney Foundation of Maryland (NKF-MD) will host its eighth annual Rappel for Kidney Health event at Baltimore’s Hyatt Regency hotel on June 3 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Participants who meet a $1,000 fundraising minimum will undergo training to rappel from the roof of the 15-story building to the ground. Additional entertainment will be available for those who would rather cheer from the landing zone.
Rappel for Kidney Health has attracted nearly 600 participants and raised over $700,000 for NKF-MD’s patient services, education and research efforts. “Rappel for Kidney Health is a unique way to advocate for and raise the necessary funds to support these patients right here in Maryland,” said Event Chair and NKF-MD Board Member Chris Simon.
