My Red Socks Run for Kidney Health

This October, I’m going to Red Socks Run as life depends on it.

By running, walking, or riding 60km I want to raise awareness of the 60hrs that people affected by kidney disease need to spend on dialysis each month.

Please donate to my page to raise funds for research into life-saving treatments, and provide support to the families of the 66 Australians that lose their life each day to kidney disease.

YOU can make a difference – Join me and help create a future where kidney health is a priority for all Australians.

Banger Kidney Recover Update

Monday 21st Aug
Hi Kidney Health Red Sox Fundraiser Donation Team

Thanks and huge love to all you special donation peeps who have contributed to such a great cause and one close to my heart (and Kidney of course LOL).

I'm in to my 20th day after the operation and progress continues to be positive and in the right direction. Doctors are very happy with how the little Kidney is doing and with all the associated vital measurements that are being tracked daily.

I'm feeling less pain each day and getting stronger and stronger each day too.

Pretty confident I'll be jogging quietly from the 12th of September onwards and be ready to make a good go of the 60km target in October as a thanks for the contribution each of you have made to the cause.

Much love, your Kidney mate, Ben/Banger😊💖
