Manitoba’s Finest – Raising Hope on the Runway
May 7, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm$150
Model clothing is provided by acclaimed local businesses, and the models themselves are carefully selected based on the tremendous contribution they have made to the kidney community and/or the Kidney Foundation. Funds raised at Manitoba’s Finest will help to lift the financial burden for the 1 in 9 Manitobans living with kidney disease. Manitobans living with chronic kidney disease (CKD) face significant financial challenges as a result of the disease. Starting dialysis often means the individual is unable to work, at a time when their out-of-pocket medical expenses increases to an average of $2000 per month. Many patients report going without food or basic necessities due to the financial burden of dialysis treatment.The Kidney Foundation is working to lift the burden of kidney disease by funding leading research, as well as providing programs and services for those living with kidney disease in our province.
Manitoba’s Finest is your chance to enjoy an evening of entertainment, conversation, recognition, and refreshments with over 300 business leaders, families, friends, and philanthropists within our community.
Together, we can lift the burden of kidney disease and raise hope.
