Red Socks Renal Shield

Calling all Renal Units... 

We want to invite your renal unit to take part in the Red Socks Renal Unit competition pitting unit against unit in the race to win the Red Socks Renal Unit Shield 

Who’s competing? We’re inviting renal units around Australia to form a team and fundraise with the aim to raise as much money as you can to fight kidney disease. Whoever raises the most money is the winning team. 

What do we win? The one and only Red Socks Renal Shield, with your renal unit’s name engraved to proudly display in your unit until the 2022 Red Socks Appeal; a special morning tea hosted by Kidney Health Australia AND free dress socks for the top 20 individual highest fundraisers in your team. 

How do we fundraise?

  • Join a Red Socks Walk - register your renal unit for a Red Socks Walk in Brisbane, Adelaide or Melbourne. Enjoy a 20% discount for teams of 10 or more by using the code RENAL10. Each participant will receive a free pair of limited edition sports socks.
  • Take on a Red Socks Challenge - whether it's the distance travelled or minutes moving, set your unit an acheivable challenge and encourage your community to sponsor them.
  • Organise a Socks Sale and raise vital funds through selling Kidney Health Red Socks. Register your unit to create a fundraising page and contact redsocks@kidney.org.au to receive your unique code to track your sales. 

How long is the competition? The competition runs until 1  November, so we ask all fundraising to be finished by then. From that date, we will know who has raised the most money and will select the winner.
