This October, your workplace can take on a new kind of business challenge by running, walking or riding 60km.

By participating, you’ll be raising much-needed awareness and funds for kidney disease research, care and support. And, you’ll be rockin’ some awesome red socks whilst you do it!

Get your workplace involved this October

Red Socks Run is a free virtual event that everyone can get involved in. It's a perfect way to keep your workplace energised, moving and connected, while raising funds and awareness for Kidney Health Australia's support services and life-changing research.

Benefits of taking part in the Red Socks Run

Improve employee health and wellbeing, by encouraging staff to get up and get moving. Physical exercise is extremely important to staying happy and healthy.

Become part of the conversation around better kidney health. Kidney disease is life-altering and there is no cure. Taking part in the Red Socks Run is a fantastic way to start a conversation and encourage staff to look after their kidneys.

Engage your staff and invite your workplace to come together and take part in something new and exciting. Together, you will become part of the Kidney Communty.

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." 

"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!"
