Sunshine Blokes Kar 97

Kidney Kar Rally 2024

Our $5,000 donation target in sight.....

With less than 4mths to the start of the 2024 KKR (Kidney Kids Rally) excitment is growing, car preparation is being finalised & further efforts to secure donations are underway.

Call out for family & friends to make a donation and help us achieve our objective to support Kidney Health Aust.

We are raising money to improve the lives of kid’s living with kidney disease.

Team 'Sunshine Blokes' (Graeme & Bruce) are once again devoted to supporting the efforts of Kidney Health Aust (KHA) helping to make the lives of those young children & youths living with Kidney Disease (CKD) a little easier.

Why?...... well Just share a 'typical' life story of one living with CKD.

Peter was diagnosed with a rare condition called FSGS and had his first transplant at the age of only seven. He knows how hard it can be to live with kidney disease, but it was something later in life that completely floored him.

When his daughter, Lorelei was eight years old, she developed puffy eyes, as well as a swollen tummy and legs. Sadly, she also had the same rare condition and would require a transplant.

Peter was racked with guilt, he felt like it was his fault, even though he could not have known. A genetic link has only recently come to light. When Peter and Jennifer started a family, they had no idea there was any risk.   

Thankfully a donor match was found for Lorelei. Lorelei could have the life-saving kidney transplant she’d been waiting for. After two months in hospital, she came home, and family life returned to something closer to normal.

The Kidney Kar Rally helps support kids like Lorelei by raising funds for our Kids and Youth Program. She is now 14 and recently attended a Kidney Es-Capers event in Sydney with her family where she had the opportunity to connect with her peers.

Let’s leave kidney disease in the dust!

My son has had kidney disease since birth and had 2 transplants so far. Both myself & my wife have donated, but there were challenges with both transplants. This charity is very close to my heart. Peter’s story tugs at the heartstrings.
