KDA Kilimanjaro Climb

To promote the gift of life through living donation, 20 kidney donors from all across the country represented Kidney Donor Athletes (KDA) in the One Kidney Climb, a summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro on World Kidney Day (March 10, 2022).

The One Kidney Climb – Mount Kilimanjaro was the first coordinated event by KDA to raise awareness about living donation, bring attention to the need for living kidney donors and demonstrate and that those who donate can be healthy and thrive with one kidney.
