New Date: Sunday, August 20, 2017

The Dialysis Dash is a family pledge-based event that raises funds for the dialysis units in St. John’s! The fitness event will also promote wellness and raise awareness about chronic kidney disease in our province. After all, research tells us that exercise will help, slow down or even prevent the progression of kidney disease!

The event will give participants three options based on their preference, a fun run, a 5K run or walk, or a 10K run through Bowring Park and railway. *NEW* chip timing available for our 10K and 5K participants. 

Gather the whole family, grab your friends, bring your coworkers and come out and enjoy. All participants are invited to participate in the post race BBQ and closing Ceremony!  


This year, funds raised from the Dialysis Dash will support the purchase of a second ultrasound machine and a dialysis machine for our hospital units - right here at home! To learn more about your impact, click here.
