Support Team Reed Doughty!

My name is Reed Doughty, and as the 2011 Honorary Chairman of the Northern Virginia Kidney Walk, I invite you to help the National Kidney Foundation's cause by donating to Team Reed Doughty!

Just as I had been drafted to the Redskins, Katie, my wife, and I were waiting anxiously for the birth of our first child. But in August 2006, Katie went into labor five weeks early. Our son, Micah, was born prematurely with end stage renal disease, or kidney failure.

The first months of Micah’s life consisted of medications, daily dialysis for almost a year, and trips to the emergency room. Finally, when Micah was 18 months old, he was ready for a kidney transplant. Katie donated one of her kidneys to him.

Both Katie and Micah are in great health now, and we have welcomed one other child, Caleb, into our family since and have another one on the way! We couldn’t have fought through our hardship without those supporting us, and in Micah’s honor we are going to walk in the Northern Virginia Kidney Walk to support the cause of the National Kidney Foundation.

Many cases of kidney failure are preventable, and that’s why I’m committed to spreading the word about early detection. If you have diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of kidney disease, talk to your doctor or get a free screening from the National Kidney Foundation.

Please help me to raise funds to support NKF's local programs and services. Your donation will make a difference in the lives of thousands of people and their families.

I am submitting mine and Pez's sponsorship now!

Thank you huly! Team Doughty is a small part of the big picture. Overall they are trying to raise 65,000 from many teams participating/donating. I'm going to walk and donate and hopefully others do as well. Hogshaven has donated and I know there are enough people on extremeskins to help out even if its a little. Thanks everyone
