What is a Virtual Race?

Virtual races are different from traditional races in many ways. You can complete your 5k, 10k, half marathon or combination of races wherever you are. You can run, jog or walk. You can complete the event on a road, track, treadmill, elliptical or any course you have in your area. This virtual race runs from March 1st – March 14th and can complete the race at anytime or combination of times during those two weeks. The choice is yours.

What is World Kidney Day?

The mission of World Kidney Day, observed on March 14, 2013, is to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys to our overall health and to reduce the frequency and impact of kidney disease and its associated health problems worldwide.

MDIBL - The future of science in the 21st century

Founded in 1898 on Maine’s scenic coast, the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory’s (MDIBL) multi-disciplinary research environment eliminates institutional boundaries and inspires new ways of thinking.

This approach reduces costs, speeds discovery, and provides unique opportunities for collaboration. reMAINE Healthy, an exciting new research partnership, is a model of these principles in action.

Who we are

reMAINE Healthy is a unique translational research program where scientists an physicians from four Maine institutions: the MDIBL, The Jackson Laboratory, Maine Medical Center and its research institution - are working together to translate laboratory discoveries from mice and zebrafish into improved therapeutic tools to diagnose, treat or prevent kidney disease in humans.

Just the facts

In the US chronic kidney disease affects 26 million adults. Over $42 billion is spent annually treating patients with the disease.

Chronic kidney disease is a major diagnostic challenge, as people with early stages of the disease tend not to have any symptoms.

The most common cause of kidney disease is diabetes and the Center for Disease Control predicts that 1 in 3 people will develop diabetes by the year 2050.

We need your help

With your help, the scientists and physicians working on the reMAINE Healthy collaborative will make important strides in the fight against kidney disease worldwide.

Join us today and help make a difference in the lives of millions now suffering from this debilitating disease.
