Chris and Rachel Blevins and their son Logan at the 2nd Annual Northern Virginia Kidney Walk held in Reston on April 22. Logan was born with congenital nephrotic syndrome. Now out of the hospital and on peritoneal dialysis Logan is waiting to get big enough for a transplant. His parents hope they are a match so they can donate a kidney to their son. Rachel and Chris formed Little Logan's Dream Team for the Northern Virginia Walk to raise awareness of kidney disease. The Gainesville family helped to raise over $5,000 for the National Kidney Foundation to support education, prevention initiatives and patient services.

Over 350 people participated in the event, and over $83,000 was raised to support the prevention of kidney disease.
