First Look: World Kidney Day Run 2012 - Malaysia

Running with Passion

Do you know 1 in 10 Malaysians is suffering from kidney disease?

There are more than 12,000 people in the waiting list for kidney transplant and only 22 kidneys were donated last year? That's how critical the shortage of kidneys in this country! Shocking fact, eh?

The theme for World Kidney Day (WKD) this year is Kidneys for Life' promoting organ donation and transplantation.

The World Kidney Day 2012 will be celebrated by organising WKD 2012 Run on 4th March 2012 at Dataran Merdeka, which is situated in the centre of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The celebration is co-organized by Malaysian Society of Nephrology (MSN), National Kidney Foundation (NKF), Ministry of Health (MOH) and National Transplant Resource Centre (NTRC) of Malaysia.
