Dallas Nephrology Associates Raises Over $20,000 on Behalf of NKF 2015 Kidney Walks

Dallas Nephrology Associates (DNA) recently raised over $20,000 on behalf of the National Kidney Foundation (NKF).  DNA employees, friends and family came out to represent DNA and participate in the National Kidney Foundation local walks which occurred in Addison on Saturday, June 6 and in Fort Worth on Sunday, April 12, 2015.  Also in conjunction with Dallas Nephrology Associates’ participation and sponsorship of these two walks, many of the company’s employees raised donations through a variety of fundraising activities.  These donations will assist the NKF to make a positive impact on those afflicted with chronic kidney disease through raised awareness and funding of lifesaving programs that educate and support patients, their families and those at risk.

“As a company, we do everything we can to support the National Kidney Foundation as together we strive to achieve the same goal of increasing awareness and providing better treatments for chronic kidney disease,” said Dr. Ruben Velez.

Over the past 6 years, DNA and its employees have raised more than $65,000 in support of the National Kidney Foundation walk events.
