World Kidney Day Run 2012: Results and Photos

Do you know 1 in 10 Malaysians is suffering from kidney disease?

There are more than 12,000 people in the waiting list for kidney transplant and only 22 kidneys were donated last year? That's how critical the shortage of kidneys in this country! Shocking fact, eh?

The theme for World Kidney Day (WKD) this year is Kidneys for Life' promoting organ donation and transplantation.

The World Kidney Day 2012 is celebrated by organising WKD 2012 Run on 4th March 2012 at Dataran Merdeka. FYI, the actual day for WKD is actually on 8th March.

The celebration is co-organized by Malaysian Society of Nephrology (MSN), National Kidney Foundation (NKF), Ministry of Health (MOH) and National Transplant Resource Centre (NTRC) of Malaysia.

The celebration was launched by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin along with both Minister and Deputy Minister of Health. He also gave away the prizes to the top three winners of each category.
