Kidney Donor Athletes



Kidney Donor Athletes is happy to provide mentoring to anyone that is curious about donating! You don’t have to be an athlete, you just need to be ‘kidney curious’. 🙂

Our Kidney Donor Athlete mentors are here to be your friend along the way. There is no incentive to them or any sponsorship by a particular transplant center. These are just people from every walk of life that have been in your shoes.

If you are an athlete and would like to be paired with a particular featured athlete, or someone in your athletic discipline we can facilitate that!

Our mentors are runners, CrossFit athletes, powerlifters, equestrians, triathletes, ultra runners, IronMan athletes, roller derby competitors, yogis, hikers, mountain climbers, inline skaters, adventure racers, kayakers, wrestlers, NPC bikini competitors, cyclists, … you get the idea. 🙂

Kidney Donor Athlete Mentoring
If you are outside of the United States we also have mentors in Canada, England, Australia, The Philippines, Finland, India, Wales, United Arab Emirates, New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa, and Turkey!!
