Here is the link to either sign up for the kidney walk, or make a donation.

Abbey Eldridge, RD Bio: Abbey is a pediatric renal dietitian at Children’s Hospital Colorado. She has worked with the adult kidney disease population since 2007, and switched to working in pediatrics a year ago. Abbey is on the local board for the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), and is actively involved with many of the NKF’s events to raise funds and awareness about kidney disease. Abbey is currently conducting research to find better ways to manage and treat bone disease in children with kidney disease. In her free time she enjoys racing in triathlons, including the full Ironman distance. National Kidney Foundation: The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) is the largest, most effective and longstanding organization fighting kidney disease. We’ve been in continuous action for 65 years, supporting patients, caregivers, and professionals, and increasing awareness. Historically, kidney disease was not regarded as a major public health problem. Through the efforts of NKF, today kidney disease is being effectively treated as a serious condition. With skyrocketing rates of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease worldwide, resulting in a corresponding increase in chronic kidney disease (CKD), our work is more important than ever. Our priority is the people we care about—those affected by CKD—and improving their lives through health screenings, research, education, and awareness.

A destination for artisan cut-to-order cheeses, salumi and gourmet grocery goods, Cheese+Provisions celebrates the farmers and producers who handcraft the highest-quality foods. Located in Denver’s burgeoning Sunnyside neighborhood, Cheese+Provisions was founded by Steve Duty, a Culinary Institute of America (CIA)-trained Chef, winemaker, cheesemaker and brewer, who believes every cheese has a story to tell, from farm to table, and is passionate about bringing these stories and flavors to Denver.

 Our goal at Cheese+Provisions is to create a fun learning environment to help people fall in love with great food. We are passionate about supporting the community of artisans who produce the products we sell.
We are a cut-to-order cheese shop offering cheeses from around the world, with an emphasis on American farmstead cheeses.  Our former chef/cheesemaker-owner leverages his lifetime of tasting and his personal relationships with cheesemakers from around the country to bring you hard-to-find, small batch cheeses.
We strive to make cheese fun (no cheese snobs here).  Our cheesemongers happily offer you as many tastes as you like (along with the stories of the cheeses you are tasting) to help you make your choices.  And then we hand-cut your selection straight from the wheel so you know it’s fresh.
In addition to great cheese, we also offer
         Artisan Salumi
         In-store Cheese Plates and Sandwiches with Wine/Beer Pairings
         An Extensive Specialty Pantry

More about Bacon Social House


The gist. Denver's culinary scene is sizzling — especially in the Sunnyside neighborhood, where Bacon Social House opened this morning. Situated in Cobbler's Corner, a redeveloped row of historic brick buildings, the artsy, mid-century modern space is a collaboration from real-state developers Paul Tamburello and Jack Pottle, owner/partner David Dill and executive chef Brian Crow (a Denver Zagat 30 Under 30 kitchen magician). "Bacon Social House is all about delivering a genuine and humble approach to food and service," says Dill, who describes the menu as a slice of "Americana" with creative twists. Here's what to know before you go.
The space is retro-cool. The 3,000-sq.-ft. quarters, inclusive of a street-level dining room, bar and mezzanine, also showboats a 1,300-sq.-ft. prep kitchen and 1,000-sq.-ft. patio that seats just under 60. Designed by Xan Creative, a local firm, it's an eye-catching, atmospheric venue that features turquoise banquettes and booths, wood tables, exposed red brick, vintage-mod chairs the color of orange sherbet and a floor-to-ceiling wall stamped with a huge "B" (for bacon, naturally). The upstairs, accessible by a staircase, also touts its own bar, a community table and additional seating that peers over the action below. Undoubtedly the coolest element of Bacon, however, is the kaleidoscopic pop-culture mural (pictured below) that greets guests when they arrive. Created by Denver-based artist Scot Lefavor, the visually stimulating piece is illustrated with pigs, turntables, caricatures of Twiggy and Dick Tracy and the old Denver Broncos logo from the 1960s.

The menu features bacon and much more. Offering breakfast, brunch/lunch, dinner (and breakfast for dinner), Crow's menu — not surprisingly — extols the virtues of bacon. Sourced from a half-dozen different purveyors (including Niman Ranch, Benton's, Tender Belly and Nueske's), you can order it candied, applewood-smoked, punctuated with garlic, with habanero chiles or paleo style. Crow also features a rotating chef's selection, and all of the bacon is offered by the strip, or in flights of three or six. And while bacon steals the stage (bacon shrimp and grits, bacon mac-and-cheese, and the bacon-and-cheese-board pictured below), there are also sandwiches, salads, pancakes and main dishes (roasted chicken pot pie, braised lamb shank and ratatouille) on the menu. "While our name is Bacon — and we definitely serve lots of bacon — we wanted our menu to represent diversity. So there are several other options, like unique salads, lighter dishes and nostalgic plates with creative twists," says Crow
