Bathurst Surf Life Saving Club

Kidney Kar Rally 2024

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

Peter was diagnosed with a rare condition called FSGS and had his first transplant at the age of 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! Your sponsorship or donation is greatly appreciated.
