2018 Catwalk for Kidneys Presented by Macy’s

Do you have a passion for fashion?! Then you won’t want to miss Catwalk or Kidneys! Featuring fashions, accessories and makeup by Macy’s, Catwalk for Kidneys is an opportunity to raise awareness of kidney disease and organ donation, and to raise funds for vital services right here in the Capital Region! 

This event has a story to tell! Our models feature philanthropic members of our community, patients and family members, donor families, living donors and clinic and academic professionals all joining together with a common cause – to make a difference right here at home! One out of every three people is at risk for kidney disease. Nearly 10,000 New Yorkers are waiting for a life saving kidney transplant. Our models are walking the Catwalk to tell the kidney story and to raise funds for those affected! Our services make an impact every single day and help with medical, nutrition and housing needs; patient, community and clinical education; school based programs that teach kids about lifelong kidney health; scholarships for young adults affected by kidney disease; healthcare advocacy and so much more!

We have an exciting new element to this year’s event! Last year’s top fundraisers, Patrick Noonan and Garnat Turner are returning as the honorary chairs with Marie Campbell, Meeshan Reid and Marie McDowell as event chairs! This means that models will be assigned to teams and each team will compete to take home the gold! We are also thrilled to have Benita Zahn returning as our event host. Benita has been a long time supporter of our local nonprofit community and is a very special friend to the Northeast Kidney Foundation.

For more information call 518-533-7880 or email!

Put your spare change to work for kidney patients!

Consider downloading the RoundUp App to support the Northeast Kidney Foundation! This is a brand new app that allows you to support the Foundation by rounding up your purchases to the next dollar automatically so your spare change goes to work! You don’t have to do anything other than download the app and link your debit or credit card to it and then whenever you use that app, the spare change gets rounded up at the end of the month and the donation goes to the Foundation. You control how much you want to donate so you can cap it at $5, $10, $15 or any amount! For questions about the app email!
