From the Kidney Color Run 2019's organizer, Brianna:
"I’m a senior at Warwick Valley High School, for my senior project I wanted to do a fundraiser for the National Kidney Foundation. My fundraiser is going to be a 5k color run where all the proceeds I make from the event would go straight to the Foundation. The reason why I chose to do a fundraiser for the National Kidney Foundation is because when I was eight I was diagnosed with a rare kidney disease focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and I recently had a kidney transplant this past February. I just wanted to raise awareness for kidney diseases and give back to this Foundation because they have been helpful in fight against kidney disease."
