The NephCure Kidney International’s Pig Jig event and Barbeque Competition made its way to the Weehawken waterfront on Saturday afternoon. This fundraiser raises awareness and funds for this rare, protein spilling disease of the kidney.
The event, which has been going on nationwide for many years, raises both money and awareness of the forms of nephrotic syndrome, a protein leaking disease which affects both children and adults. The highlight of the afternoon was the barbeque competition.
By day’s end, approximately $50,000 had been raised for the NephCure Kidney International. If you would like to make a donation, just www.nephcure.org.
