Kidney Donor Athletes was born out of my love of distance running, and my desire to solve problems. When I was getting ready to donate my kidney to a stranger in early 2017 I was surprised by how little information was out there for athletes who wanted to be donors. Where were all the distance runners that donated and were able to get back to their competitive, pre-surgery shape?!

Since then I have found many examples that show that we’re out there, we just needed a common space to share our stories and answer potential donor’s questions!

I have made it a point to get outside of my comfort zone by sharing my story and actively being a living example of how life can be just as active and adventurous post-donation.
