Kidney Foundation Honors Owings Mills Volunteers
The National Kidney Foundation of Maryland recently presented its Ambassador Family of the Year Award to Rose and Jeffrey Karlan at its annual volunteer awards reception at the Baltimore Museum of Industry.
“We could not exist without our volunteers whose efforts help us to make the community aware of the life-sustaining role the kidneys play in health and of the risk factors and real dangers presented by kidney disease,” said NKF-MD Board Chairman Christopher Simon.
“Over the past year-and-a-half, this Owings Mills couple has so graciously allowed the foundation into their lives and to share the memory of their son, Harrison, who died as an infant from renal failure. In 2013, the Karlans raised over $20,000 for their walk team, Harrison’s Heroes, and were the top family-and-friends team in the country.”
