Red Socks Appeal

There are over 25,000 people in Australia living with kidney failure. There is no cure. Dialysis or kidney transplantation are needed to stay alive.

This October our Kidney Community needs your support by joining a Red Socks Walk, registering your Red Socks Virtual Challenge, or buying a pair of Red Socks to proudly wear to raise vital funds to fight kidney disease.

What do Red Socks have to do with kidney disease?

People on dialysis are strapped to a machine for 60 hours a month on average while it cleans their blood. While having dialysis treatment they often get cold, especially their feet. This is why we’re asking you to go bold this October and wear Red Socks to show people living with kidney disease that you care.

There are many ways to show you care

Red Socks Walk

Join a walk in Brisbane, Melbourne or Adelaide. Join or host a community walk in your local area.
