Cooma Renal Unit
Cooma Renal Unit joined together in the incredible effort to raise over $6,000 and walk 692 kms.
Registered Nurse, Sarah Burns, helped lead the initiative.
"Our team signed up for the Red Socks Run fundraiser to raise awareness of kidney disease in our community. Too often we hear stories of people who aren’t aware lifestyle choices that may cause chronic health conditions like kidney disease, and this leads to a high risk of developing them later in life."
OUR ADVICE TO YOU:
"Find a group to do the fundraising with, it helps a lot with raising awareness and keeps you motivated and accountable! It also helps to have a goal. We went for walks with some of our patients, swam laps in the pool, and ran through bush tracks too. We all felt better for it at the end of the fundraising month!"
