The Student Athlete of the Week this week has a rare kidney disorder. Both of her kidneys have failed and she has been on the transplant list for the past two years.

On Saturday, Kayla Iazzetta and members of her Ocean Lakes softball team will walk in the Virginia Beach Kidney Walk. 

As of last week, the team has raised close to $3,000. Their goal is $5,000.

She is an extraordinary young lady and as she says, this disease will not get the best of her. 

The walk begins at 10 a.m. at the 24th Street Park at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.

She has also been asked to speak prior to the walk.
