MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minneapolis is recognizing National Kidney Month.
In honor of the month, the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi River is lit up in orange.
The National Kidney Foundation is urging all Americans to give their kidneys a second thought and a well-deserved check-up.
Our kidneys filter 200 liters of blood a day, help regulate blood pressure and direct cell production.
Throughout the month of March, the foundation is offering free screening for people.
