Kidneys on the Move (KOTM) is an annual benefit held in support of patients living with kidney disease and in need of a kidney transplant. It was started by Doug and Maureen Hobbs of Victoria, after Doug’s brother Keith donated his kidney to him on Valentine’s Day, 2000.  Doug and Maureen joined the Kidney Foundation of Canada BC / Yukon Branch to help raise awareness about the importance of organ registration and to advocate for patients living with kidney disease.  

Over the past 20 years, KOTM donors have raised over $100,000. for the Kidney Foundation of Canada, BC / Yukon Branch,   (KF Charitable # is 10756 7398 RR0001)  Kidneys on the Move continues to this day as a legacy to Doug Hobbs.  Please review our new website at www.kidneysonthemove.org.
