For the second year in a row, employees from Stallion Oilfield Service's Eastern region are teaming up to take on the 2019 Pittsburgh Tough Mudder. While we are overcoming the obstacles and mud, we will be running to raise money for Nephcure Kidney International. Nephcure is the only organization committed exclusively to support research seeking the cause of the potentially debilitating kidney disease, Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), and the diseases that cause Nephrotic Syndrome, improve treatment, and find a cure.
Nephcure is important to Stallion because of the help it has provided to the family of one of our team members, James Porter. James' neice, LExi, was diagnosed with FSGS when she was 3 years old. A kidney transplant and weekly plasmapheresis treatments allow her to continue doing the things she loves. Lexi never lets her disease hold her back in any way, and she will be an inspiration to us as we puch ourselves to cross the finish line.
Just as we will need each other to make it through the obstacles of Tough Mudder, we need your help to reach our fundraising goal for Lexi and Nephcure. Last year we were able to raise $2300 and that is our goal for this year. Please consider making a donation to our campaing to that we can beat our goal for Lexi and Nephcure.
