Walk planned for World Kidney Day – March 9th

The board supporting efforts to open the first Dialysis Clinic in Puerto Peñasco (Proyecto de Asistencia Comunitaria Integral, A.C.) is organizing a walk on March 9th to commemorate World Kidney Day. The march will begin at 5 p.m. from Plaza la Madre (next to the baseball stadium) and make its way to the facilities of the Dialysis Clinic (behind the General Hospital).

The walk, which is held across the globe every second Thursday in March, aims to raise health awareness particularly about kidneys as a fundamental organ in the body’s function.

“This is the second walk done here, and it is to raise awareness about caring for one’s health by walking and exercise, which is why we are going to celebrate,” emphasized Rafaela Felix, Board President of the civil association.

Participants in the walk scheduled for March 9th are encouraged to wear comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. The march will depart from Plaza la Madre along Blvd. Benito Juarez, turning on López Portillo, again on Blvd. Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez, and once more on Rio Suchiate until it reaches the clinic. There, medical staff at the clinic will be speaking with those participating in the walk.

Given the tremendous support both from the Mexican and foreign (US and Canadian) communities over the past years in working to see this project come to fruition, everyone is invited to come out and walk in honor of World Kidney Day!

On March 11th, the civil association of the Dialysis Center will be holding a fundraiser ball at Quinta Ventura, beginning at 9 p.m. Tickets 200 pesos.
