2016 Wiregrass Kidney Walk/5K Run Results

The Alabama Kidney Foundation hosted its 4th annual Kidney Walk on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at Westgate Park/ Kiwanis Pavilion in Dothan.  Over 500 participants attended this year’s event, helping raise over $82,000 for Alabama’s kidney patients in need!  Congratulations to all individual and team walkers, team captains, walk committee members, volunteers and all who worked so hard to make this year’s walk a success! Our first annual 5K run also took place, hosting 64 runners. Each age category recognized 3 winners from youngest to the young at heart.  We look forward to growing this new activity with our yearly walk event.
