The Human Kidneys are AMAZING. The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, each about the size of a fist. They are located just below the rib cage, one on each side of your spine. Healthy kidneys filter about a half cup of blood every minute, removing wastes and extra water to make urine. To celebrate this amazing human organ, we are hosting The Human Kidneys 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2. This is the sixth race in our new THE HUMAN BODY series.
National Kidney Month is in March, so you have from January to March to complete your race. Plus, we’ll be donating at least 20% from every registration to the The American Kidney Fund, who fights kidney disease on all fronts as the nation’s leading kidney nonprofit. AKF works on behalf of the 37 million Americans living with kidney disease, and the millions more at risk, with an unmatched scope of programs that support people wherever they are in their fight against kidney disease—from prevention through post-transplant living.
