Kevin Was Dying Slowly Each Day, But What He Did Was Unimaginable… And Then A Miracle Happened.

June 2012

Four days a week, Kevin Campbell is hooked up to a dialysis machine to filter his blood. He was diagnosed with slow, progressive kidney disease which left him with only 4 percent kidney function. He’s been waiting to get a life-saving kidney transplant. He was forced to move away from his only daughter, Julia, to be close to the hospital.

Even with his struggle with kidney disease, Kevin still competes in the Tough Mudder event. He is Tough Mudder’s first ever dialysis and transplant wait-list competitor. Julia watched him and cheered him on from the sidelines.

The extremely tiring and demanding 12-mile, military-style obstacle is difficult for anyone. At one point, Kevin collapsed during one of the courses, but he would not give up, he refused to be defeated.
