Organization Description: The NephCure Foundation is the only organization solely committed to seeking a cause and cure for Nephrotic Syndrome and Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). Comprised of patients, their families and friends, researchers, physicians and other healthcare professionals, NephCure aims to help science unlock the biological mechanisms that cause these serious conditions and ultimately find a way to cure and prevent them.
Program Details and Team Benefits:
Together to the finish line. One and all are invited to participate in established events to fundraise for NephCure in honor of friends or family members who are battling Nephrotic Syndrome and FSGS. We call these fundraisers Nephletes, who are automatically part of the NephCure Super Squad, joining folks from all over the world who share your efforts in both large and smaller events. Potential events include marathons, swimmathons, bikeathons, triathalons and other competitive challenges.
When you becaome a Nephlete, NephCure will support you by:
• Step 1: Helping you to select any athletic event (marathon, half-marathon, triathlon, etc) to participate in honor of a co-worker, neighbor or loved one and in support of NephCure. You can also be registered in one of our charity spots and paired with a family to fundraise.
• Step 2: Helping you set your personal fundraising goal! And helping you achieve it!
• Step 3: Helping you to create your personal webpage so that you can invite your friends and family to join your efforts.
• Step 4: Helping you reach levels of fundraising to reach incentive goals.
