With the help of his mom, Kirstin Lehmann, two-year-old Sam McKail walked 100 kilometres for kidney disease.
Starting in May, McKail wanted to do his part to help raise awareness for kidney disease and set a goal of walking 100 kilometres in 100 days.
"My family has been highly involved with the kidney foundation for the past five years. My uncle was diagnosed with renal failure and he needed a transplant," said Lehmann. "That led to a bunch of events that led my aunt to donate a kidney, my mom donated a kidney anonymously and since then it has kind of become the family cause."
The two have walked one kilometre every day throughout the summer.
"There were days that it was just not a good walk day where we weren't keen on it, but Sam would already have his bucket and be waiting by the front door looking at us," said Lehmann. "A lot of the time he would be motivating us to go."
McKail will finish his 100th kilometre today (September 10) at the kidney march in Calgary.
