Congrats to All Our KHAKY Country Fair Teams

Special THANKS to all the great volunteers, sponsors and participants of our 2018 KHAKY Country Fair and Fun Walks! Events were held in Corbin, Campbellsville and Danville. Our committees worked hard and these events were lots of fun while raising awareness of kidney disease and raising money to support the programs and services that KHAKY provides. Our team captains, Camille Robidoux, Erica Porter and Alicia Absher all showed excellent leadership and coordination skills in putting together their team, soliciting sponsors and getting participants involved. We are grateful beyond words to everyone involved. Thank you. Let's do it again in 2019.
