On Sunday, April 21, at 2 p.m., Del. Tom Rust (R-86) with volunteers from the Team Rust walk team will join hundreds of residents of the Reston and greater Herndon area for the 2013 Northern Virginia Kidney Walk at the Reston Town Center. The National Kidney Foundation’s Kidney Walk will help fund the foundation’s initiatives in awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease and the need for organ donation.
“This is an issue that hits close to home,” said Del. Rust. “I have two people very close to me with diabetes, and kidney health is something that we are all very much aware of. … I hope that residents in the Reston and Herndon areas will consider participating in the walk with us. Of every dollar raised, 81 cents goes to vital services that support education, treatment and patient support programs.”
Del. Rust is serving as honorary chair of the Northern Virginia Kidney Walk and is working with representatives from the National Kidney Foundation to increase participation in this year’s walk. Those interested in volunteering with the Team Rust walk team can call Rust’s legislative office at 703-437-9400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
