Why Lucky “Kidney” Run?

Did you know that 1 in 7 Americans has kidney disease? That’s 30 million people! However, 96% of those with early kidney disease (stages 1 and 2) don’t even know they have CKD. And of those with severely reduced kidney function, (stage 4) but not on dialysis, 48%, are not aware of having the disease.* That’s why we at the East Tennessee Kidney Foundation host the annual Lucky Kidney Run™ and Knox Shamrock Fest™, to bring awareness of this “silent” disease and educate the community about its risk factors, symptoms, and prevention. *Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 2017
