Lucky Kidney Run. The 6K walk and run starts at Market Square and progresses from downtown to the historic Fourth and Gill neighborhood and back. A 2K walk course progresses north and back on Gay Street and explores several side streets.

The East Tennessee Kidney Foundation (ETKF) is a 100-percent local organization that helps more than 1,800 kidney patients annually in 17 East Tennessee counties with costs for transportation to and from dialysis treatments as well as provides nutritional supplements and blankets to make dialysis treatments more comfortable for patients. ETKF supplies patient and caregiver education; facilitates prevention, detection and awareness of kidney disease; and provides free dental care to patients to remove the final barrier to joining the kidney transplant waiting list. The organization also is once again providing free kidney disease early detection screenings at community and workplace health fairs. Funds raised and contributions to ETKF support patients in the East Tennessee region.
