In 2008 Tampa native and beloved friend, Will Wellman was diagnosed with an aggressive form of FSGS, a rare and debilitating kidney disease which quickly led to totally kidney failure. Will suffered from severe symptoms rendering him bedridden and later led to a kidney transplant. While the transplant was successful at first, the disease quickly took hold of the new kidney and Will is now sentenced to life on dialysis until a cure is found. A close-knit group of friends rallied together to create a simple BBQ fundraiser event to raise money for the NephCure Kidney International, the only non-profit organization committed to finding a cure for FSGS and Nephrotic Syndrome. What began as a simple backyard BBQ has grown into the Tampa Pig Jig on the River, an annual waterfront blowout with great bands, delicious food, fun games, and thousands of attendees. Over the past 6 years, the Pig Jig event has raised over $2,000,000 with all proceeds benefiting NephCure Kidney International.For more information about our event or to find out ways you can help please visit our website at www.TampaPigJig.com
