Welcome to Chris Akkerman School!

Kidney March is Coming to Chris Akkerman


On Friday, May 5th we will be walking to raise awareness of Kidney disease because, “Failure is not an Option” for anyone with kidney disease!

This is the Kidney Foundation of Canada’s 53nd anniversary and we can show we care by helping raise money for research, organ donation, transplant programs, and services for people with chronic kidney disease.  Click on the link below for more information
