“More than 661,000 Americans have kidney failure. Of these, 468,000 individuals are on dialysis, and roughly 193,000 live with a functioning kidney transplant. Each year, kidney disease kills more people than breast or prostate cancer. In 2013, more than 47,000 Americans died from kidney disease. CKD often has no symptoms in its early stages and can go undetected until it is very advanced. (For this reason, kidney disease is often referred to as a “silent disease”).” The Elliott Brothers are no stranger to CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease). As a boy Clayton was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy (Berger’s Disease), a kidney disease that occurs when an antibody called immunoglobulin A (IgA) lodges in the kidneys. This results in local inflammation that, over time, may hamper the kidneys' ability to filter wastes from the blood. There is no cure for the disease, but it is treatable when discovered early although kidney damage has typically occurred at this point. Nathan and Clayton Elliott will be participating in the Under Armour Mountain Series 10K at the Copper Mountain Resort on July 14th, 2018 and would like to use the opportunity to raise awareness and generate donations for the National Kidney Foundation. All donations will be donated directly to the NKF utilizing the Crowd Rise platform. Thank you in advance for support, much love!
