We are not only in the program management business but are in the business of changing communities for the better. Over the last few weeks, HPMers across the country have enjoyed supporting various nonprofit organizations in the cities they live and work.

The HPM team in Birmingham, AL, whipped up some delicious chili for the annual Chili Cook-Off supporting The Exceptional Foundation. In Austin, TX, HPMers attended the Round Rock ISD Partners In Education Foundation's 20th Annual Shining Stars Gala. Our Mobile, AL, team led the Alabama Kidney Foundation's Mobile Kidney Walk, with Senior Project Manager Andrew Betts serving as the 2021 Honorary Walk Chair. #HPMStewardship
At the beginning of 2021, CEO of Thompson Gray and Gray Analytics Ron Gray and his wife Cindy Gray were selected to be the Honorary Walk Chairs for the Alabama Kidney Foundation’s (AKF) annual Huntsville Kidney Walk Celebration. The Huntsville Walk alone raised more than $92,000 thanks to fundraising partners and generous donations of individuals and companies across the Huntsville community. The statewide Kidney Walk in total raised $630,000, which will go back to Alabama families affected by kidney disease. We’re grateful to have been part of this worthy cause and support our fellow Alabamians in need. Read more: http://ow.ly/76x150EHvDk

With sad hearts we announce that our beloved Ann passed away this week. Ann gave 22 years of her life to AKF, many of you most likely were greeted by her cheerful voice over the phone to help with patient assistance. We will miss Ann but know that she had a life well lived of 90 years! A celebration of her life will be held this afternoon in Homewood.

We would like to introduce our 2022 AKF Montgomery Kidney Walk & Celebration Honorary Patient Chair, Charlie Belle Jacks.
At just the young age of three years old, Miss Charlie Belle has endured & overcame so much in her three years.
A reminder that kidney disease & kidney failure knows no age, gender or race. It can affect anyone.
Charlie Belle is a fighter & a true princess warrior & a true inspiration! Thank you to her parents, Ryan & Megg Jacks for sharing her story & their journey as her parents with us to help spread awareness while also supporting the AKF mission. The AKF appreciates you & your support so much!

Alabama Kidney Foundation - Daron Payne & Kemberly Smith

Daron Payne, former Alabama Football Player and current
football defensive tackle for the Washington Commanders,
and his mom, Kemberly Smith, partnered with AKF in
developing PSA videos for kidney disease awareness.
Kemberly was on dialysis for several years prior to receiving
a kidney transplant. She shared her experience as a dialysis
patient while raising Daron and his brothers and her journey in
receiving a transplant. We are so appreciative for Daron and
Kemberly in helping AKF educate the public about kidney disease and the importance of organ donation.

Today is National Dark Chocolate Day, but what's your favorite kind?
There are so many different kinds of chocolate, each one with different nutrients, but they can all be part of a kidney-friendly diet!
White chocolate contains the lowest amount of potassium, phosphorous and oxalate, making it easier to include in a kidney-friendly diet. On the other hand, dark chocolate contains the biggest amount of protein and fiber, but can be high in oxalate and potassium. Just be sure to check the numbers when you enjoy a treat!
