Chancellor Davidson to support Kidney Foundation

University of Lethbridge Chancellor Richard Davidson and his wife Denise will be taking on a very unique camping trip in September: They will be walking from Kananaskis Country to Calgary over a three-day period to support the Kidney Foundation and its research projects.

The Davidson's team is called "En Route 66" and as of early August, had raised more than $8,000.

"Since our son's transplant almost 17 years ago, we have had the opportunity to see first hand the value of the research that has been done, and in more than 20 years of volunteering with the Kidney Foundation, we have seen the way the foundation has helped people living with kidney disease in so many ways," says Davidson.

"We are committed to doing our part in the Kidney March this September 10 to 12 by walking 100km, sleeping in a tent for two nights and, with your support, raising money for the good work of the Kidney Foundation."

With two garage sales under their belt, and an innovative t-shirt sale strategy in place, the Davidsons are looking for members of the Lethbridge community, as well as the University community, to show their support
