My Red Socks Challenge for Kidney Health.
I am taking part in the Red Socks Challenge this October.
Did you know that you can lose up to 90% of kidney function before having any symptoms. Once your kidneys reach failure, there is no cure. Dialysis or kidney transplant are the only options to stay alive. I’ll be pulling up my RED SOCKS for the 25,000 people who are currently living with kidney failure.
Please donate to my page and you’ll be helping Kidney Health Australia not only support those living with kidney disease but help raise awareness of early detection and knowing your kidney risk.
YOU can make a difference. Let me know if you want to join me on my RED SOCKS CHALLENGE!

130kms downFriday 22nd Oct There is just over a week left in October and Coben and I have ridden 130kms. Though my last two rides have been without Coben due to schooling commitments. This fundraiser has been a good motivator to get me working on my fitness. Since Feb I have needed to put on around 10kgs after my surgery. This has been a fun process of not worrying about what I eat and just trying to load on the carbs. Now at 79kgs I am feeling the best that I have in about 5 years and now it's time to start working on fitness and rebuilding muscle definition. My goal is to get back into all the activities that I used to love before this illness began impacting energy levels and body functions. My desire is to be as fit as possible when I receive the call to say there is a perfectly matched kidney for me. Then post transplant I would like to fulfil my dream of paddling the Franklin River on my 1 year anniversary of my transplant. The Franklin is an iconic 8-10 day wilderness white water kayaking trip in Central West Tassie. This is a gigantic goal, however, all of you, my supporters are helping me see this into reality as I embark on this journey this October. Again thank you for the motivation to get through this challenge. Share
It's a mental game!Tuesday 19th Oct My initial motivation for doing the red socks appeal was to raise funds for Kidney Health Australia, but also as a bit of an accountability to start to increase my fitness again.
