Pair Up is the American Kidney Fund’s new national campaign empowering women to protect themselves— and the people they love— from kidney disease. Laila Ali joined the AKF this past Thursday to kick off the Pair Up campaign at Military Island in Times Square.
The launch of the campaign coincided with the release of a national survey commissioned by the AKF revealing that most Americans who care for their loved ones’ health are unaware that diabetes and high blood pressure are the leading causes of kidney disease.
Pair Up asks women to join the fight against kidney disease by taking two simple actions:
1) Learn if they’re at risk for kidney disease.
2) Spread the word about kidney disease to friends and loved ones who also may be at risk.
