A 5K stroll could end up going the extra mile towards the detection and prevention of a disease that affects more than 26 million Americans. Hundreds will step up for the San Francisco Kidney Walk and help raise funds to support those who already have chronic kidney disease and the millions more at risk. The noncompetitive Walk will be held on Saturday, May 8th. The Kidney Walk starts and ends at One Maritime Plaza in downtown San Francisco and the 5K route travels along the Embarcadero. Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. Allen Martin, Opening Ceremony host and news anchor for CBS 5 kicks off the Walk at 10:30. The Walk will feature a Kids Zone, music, refreshments, and a Wellness Fair. Free kidney health screenings are available to the public from 9:00 a.m. to Noon.
