2019 Montgomery Walk Results

The Alabama Kidney Foundation hosted its 32nd Annual Montgomery Kidney Walk on Saturday, May 4, 2019, at Baptist Health’s DeBoer Building in Montgomery. About 900 participants attended this year’s event and helped the Foundation raise a record breaking over $170,000 for Alabama’s kidney patients in need! Congratulations to all individual and team walkers, team captains, volunteers and committee members who helped us exceed our fundraising goal!
