100% Volunteer based!
Who Are We
We are 100% volunteers making a difference in the lives of those that suffer from Nephrotic Syndrome.
To raise money for NephCure Kidney International, whose mission is to accelerate research for effective treatments for rare forms of Nephrotic Syndrome, and to provide education and support that will improve the lives of those affected by these protein-spilling kidney diseases.
Even though the first Pig Jig was in 2018, did you know that the Silicon Valley Pig Jig Committee has been actively involved in raising funds and awareness for Nephrotic Syndrome(NS) since 2010? Our efforts began with the Bay Area NephCure Walk and over the years we have organized many events including; Cocktails for a Cure, online fundraising campaigns and Bunco for a Cure. Local kids have organized lemonade stands and even a haunted house. As a result we have raised and donated over $1.5 million to help advance NephCure’s mission of finding better treatments for NS.
We hope you will join us for the 4th annual Pig Jig at Excite Ballpark (San Jose Giants Muni Stadium) on Saturday, October 1, 2022 and help us reach our goal of $300,000. You can be a sponsor or make a donation. Together we can ‘cue up a cure for Nephrotic Syndrome!
