The annual Duluth Kidney Walk begins at Bayfront Festival Park at 9 a.m. Saturday with check-in. The noncompetitive 3K walk begins at 10 a.m.

The event also features music from local bands, food, children’s games with prizes, a health and wellness area, silent auction and complimentary massages.

To register for the walk, go to www.kidneywalk.org or call (800) 596-7943. On-site registration will also be accepted. The event is free and open to the public, although the National Kidney Foundation encourages participants to raise a minimum of $100 to receive an official Kidney Walk T-shirt.

Money raised from the walk will support a free kidney health screening in Duluth on Sept. 25, early detection programs, research, professional and patient education, and organ donation advocacy.
