The 5th Annual Southern Delaware Kidney Walk was held at Cape Henlopen State Park April 14. It was a family- and dog-friendly event with several prewalk activities for children, families and dogs. Funds raised at the event go to help fund research, free screenings and support for individuals with kidney disease.
