Erica is a reporter for Moose FM and in Fort St. John, B.C. She grew up in Victoria, B.C. and received her Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.

Although it was shy of the $7,500 fundraising goal, Profittlich says the event was fun, and helped raise awareness in the community. She also hopes it will get bigger and better next year.

"The Kidney Walk will definitely come back to Fort St. John," she says. "We hope we can establish this as part of the local community calendar every year."

The event also honoured local resident Angie Hillborn, who was recently diagnosed with Kidney disease. She started the walk off by cutting the ribbon.
