On the 5th and 6th of September, Dominic Young RMT had the opportunity to volunteer his massage therapy skills at the Kidney Foundation’s 5th annual Kidney March. This year, 300 marchers walked 100 km over three days through Alberta’s K-Country and Foothills region. Each marcher had committed to raising a minimum of $2200 in the fight against kidney disease. This year’s march raised over $650000!
Dominic and other volunteer massage therapists provided 20-minute on-site massages to marchers as they arrived at their camp at the end of their first and second days of walking. Approximately 150 marchers per day received massage treatments! Dominic looks forward to volunteering at the Kidney March in 2015 as well.
