My name is Johnny Wowk also known as "Johnny The Walker" from the greater Boston area. My dad passed away from end stage renal disease at an early age and passed it on to me and my older brother Joe who is on dialysis. When my both my kidneys failed in July of 2000 I was put on dialysis and I said I would walk the distance of around the world in memory of my dad and promote kidney disease awareness. Five years later I received a transplant at Mass General making me stronger and could walk further. When I reached the distance of around the world on July 4th 2011, I had set a walking record. Everyone told me not to stop and keep on walking, so I did, and continued setting walking records. My eleven year old transplanted kidney failed on August 21, 2016 and was put back on dialysis but that won't stop me. I have reached 34,000 miles and if I add the miles I walked as a security officer for 13 years before my kidneys failed I have walked 40,000 miles. My new goal is 50,000 miles and I have confidence I will reach it. Wish me luck. Johnny Wowk aka Johnny The Walker
