KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Nearly 300 people faced the rain to raise awareness for kidney disease on Sunday afternoon.

The National Kidney Foundation hosted its 2019 Est Tennessee Kidney Walk Sunday at 12:30 p.m. The walk took place at the UT gardens and our very own Rick Russo emcee'd the event.

Leading the walk and raising $6,000 was a little boy named Liam and his family. Liam and his family wore shirts that read "Team Liam".
