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. Also, our third annual 5K run took place, hosting 50 committed folks running on a wooded trail in the rain. Each of the age categories recognize the top 3 winners from youngest to the young at heart.
