CHARLOTTE – “Walk for Jordan” will raise money for 2-year-old Jordan Ocampo, a Matthews child with end-stage renal disease who is waiting for a kidney transplant at Carolinas Medical Center-Charlotte.

The walk will be May 5, from 10 a.m to noon at Freedom Park at East Boulevard and Maryland Avenue.

There is no entry fee for the walk-a-thon, but participants are asked to send brochures to friends and family about Jordan’s transplant-related expenses. The family needs about $40,000.

Walk-a-thon registration forms and brochures are available at or by contacting Jack or April Heyboer at 704-665-1983.
