Annual Dialysis 5k Run
Annual 'PB' Dialysis 5K Run | Walk - Thank you and Results
Our 2016 Annual 'PB' Dialysis 5K is now in the books. Thank you to all of our volunteers, sponsors and registrants for making this year the best ever. We more than doubled our participants from last year and are thrilled to see the word of our fundraiser getting out to more people. Participants came from Stratford, Branford, Middletown, Wilton, Farmington, Weston, Brooklyn, Colchester, Preston, Niantic, New London, Mystic and Norwich, CT as well as Hope Valley, Wakefield, and West Greenwich, RI. Thanks each of you for supporting our cause. You can see the results of our race here - 2016 Carlisle Williams Foundation Dialysis 5K Run results: https://t.co/BFevmEwD7Y https://t.co/EEXxaQA7aY.
We also want to thank our prize sponsors - Foxwoods Resort Casino, Mohegan Sun Casino, Olde Tymes Restaurant, Panera Bread, and corporate sponsor Chelsea Groton Foundation.
And of course, none of this could have happened without our volunteers - thanks to Courtney and crew, Elana, Lorine, Emily, Mark - for your leadership and insight and hard work in organizing the event as well as staffing and execution.
All proceeds from our Charity 5K goes to help patients with kidney failure who are on dialysis. Our mission is to increase compliance with treatment and reduce hospital days for dialysis patients, thereby increasing their ability to receive a kidney transplant. We do this through our flagship dialysis support bag which includes educational and nutrition information to help understand the requirements of treatment, along with goodies specific to dialysis to give them hope to keep going.
All of our services are provided to dialysis patients free of charge and we have requests from all over the country. In order to continue meeting the requests and growing our reach, we must raise funds so that we never have to say no to requests or ask the patients for money. Thank you for considering donating to our cause.
