Why Red Socks you ask? 

Currently, there is no cure for kidney disease. Once diagnosed with kidney failure, many people will spend long periods of time undertaking dialysis.

Australians undergoing dialysis spend an average of 60 hours per month strapped to a machine that cleans their blood.

Although it’s a life-saving treatment the aftermath can leave people feeling extremely fatigued, unwell, dizzy and nauseous. Whilst on dialysis, a person's body will get very cold, particularly their feet.

So, this October let your ankles do the talking and wear your Red Socks to show people living with kidney disease you care.
