We encourage participants of all ages to join us in this exciting adventure!
The Historical Mystery Walk is a proud project of Historic Hawai‘i Foundation, Honolulu Exposed, and the National Kidney Foundation of Hawai‘i.
In addition to all of those amazing activities, we will also be offering our largest complimentary kidney screening of the year. Did you know that over 198,000 people in Hawai‘i are living with kidney disease? Over 4,400 people are on dialysis and more than 300 people are waiting for transplants at this very moment. Hawai‘i is also 30 percent higher than the national average for kidney disease risk and kidney failure.
The National Kidney Foundation, a major voluntary nonprofit health organization, is dedicated to prevention of kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by kidney disease and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation.
