The rally brings together a community of passionate drivers who share a common goal. The camaraderie of this driving community is truly amazing, creating a supportive and encouraging environment for all involved - it's one big family.
Together, let's continue to make a real difference in the lives of kids and youth affected by kidney disease.
Meet the Rallytives
Peter has been part of the rally since the beginning and is an honouree lifetime member.
Peter’s daughter Jodie was a kidney kid and sadly lost her life to kidney disease at the age of 22. Jodie was six years old when she was diagnosed with kidney failure and was in and out of hospital more often than not.
Jodie participated in Kidney Kids Camps along with her sister Deb, who found the camps were a great way to bring together kids who were going through a similar journey.
Peter and his daughter Deb take part in the rally every year, primarily to keep the memory of Jodie alive and to continue to raise funds for Kidney Health Australia’s Kids and Youth Program.
