Fresenius Medical Care Brings Celebrity Chef Aaron McCargo Jr. And His Healthy, Flavorful Cuisine To The Boston Kidney Walk

Stocks in this article: FMS

Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr., sponsored by Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), is bringing his cooking skills and big personality to the Boston Kidney Walk on Sunday, Oct. 28, to show dialysis patients and their families how to create kidney-friendly meals with his down-home big, bold flavors. Hosted by the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), the annual walk attracts thousands of participants to raise funds to fight kidney disease, and to call attention to the need for prevention, early detection and organ donation.

More than 26 million Americans – one in nine adults – have chronic kidney disease (CKD), a progressive, usually permanent loss of kidney function, while millions more are at increased risk and may not even know it. When CKD leads to kidney failure, the only treatments are ongoing dialysis or a kidney transplant. And to stay healthy, people on dialysis have to control their levels of potassium, phosphorus, salt and saturated fats by limiting their intake of certain foods.

This year’s Kidney Walk has a new location, starting in Cambridge’s Canal Park. The four-mile loop route runs southwest along the Charles River before crossing the Massachusetts Ave. Bridge and returning to the park. Participant check-in starts at 9:30 a.m., and the walk begins at 10:30 a.m.

Beginning at 10 a.m. at the FMCNA booth in Canal Park, Chef McCargo, star of “Big Daddy’s House” on Food Network, will demonstrate how to prepare appetizing dishes that are tasty, affordable, and dialysis-friendly for tailgating or everyday dining. Free food samples will be offered, and an FMCNA dietitian also will be available to answer questions.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Chef McCargo to Boston. His innovative recipes and tips for adding flavor and variety to dialysis patients’ meals allow them to get more enjoyment from eating, while still complying with their diets,” said Kathy Dickey, regional vice president at FMCNA. “Fresenius Medical Care has been a sponsor of the Boston Kidney Walk for five years running, and we are excited that the NKF is putting more focus on the renal diet.”
