Event at a Glance
Chico Kidney Duathlon - Saturday, March 21, 2015
Chico Nephrology and the Chico Tri Club are proud to sponsor the second annual Chico Kidney Duathlon! This ground-breaking event combines a 5 Kilometer run with a 10 Kilometer bike ride through Upper and Lower Bidwell Park to benefit the Enloe Foundation’s Kidney Health Fund.
By hosting this inspiring event, we also hope to help raise awareness and educate the public about the kidney and kidney disease. Nearly 1 out of every 1000 adults require dialysis and another 26 million American adults have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Kidney disorders are projected to increase in the coming years due to the aging population. Although assistance programs are available, they are limited and many patients don’t qualify.
We are delighted to have partnered with the Enloe Foundation, who shares our commitment to community health and has been a making a difference in the Chico area since 1986. Together we have established the Kidney Health Fund, which will provide support for individuals with kidney related complications.
Why not join us for a new spring break tradition, raise awareness and help support your community!
All net proceeds given to the Chico Kidney Duathlon remain in the Chico area to benefit the communities kidney needs. Your donation, through volunteering, participation or financial help support our cause.
