We’re excited to announce that the young artist who received the greatest number of votes is Caroline Fisher of Shreveport, Louisiana. Caroline’s winning drawing, "The Southern Valley," will be the cover of the 2017 American Kidney Fund calendar!
As the cover winner, Caroline will receive a trip to Washington, D.C., to be recognized at our annual national gala, The Hope Affair, this fall. Calendars will be available for purchase on our website in October.
The other 12 winners—all children like Caroline who live daily with serious challenges including diet restrictions, dialysis or kidney transplants—will have their artwork featured inside the calendar.
Our Calendar Kids Program provides an opportunity for pediatric kidney patients to express themselves through artwork and to receive national recognition while increasing awareness of kidney disease throughout the United States. We rely on donations from people like you to ensure patients have access to lifesaving care in their fight for survival.
