2018 Wiregrass Walk/5K Run Results

The Alabama Kidney Foundation hosted its 6th annual Kidney Walk/5K Run on Saturday, April 7, 2018 at Westgate Park/ Kiwanis Pavilion in Dothan. Even in the rain, over 300 participants attended this year’s event, helping to raise $90,000 for Alabama’s kidney patients!  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! Special thank you to 2018 Honorary Walk Chair, Mike Schmitz, and 2018 Honorary Patient Chair, Carrie Harville.

Each of the age categories recognize the top 3 winners from youngest to the young at heart.
