My target 505 kms

My Red Socks Run for Kidney Health.

This October, I’m going to Red Socks Run like a life depends on it!

By running 300km for the month of October, I want to raise awareness of the time that kidney disease patients and my wife Sophie  need to spend on peritoneal dialysis each month (300 hrs).

Please donate to my page to raise funds for research into life-saving treatments, and provide support to the families of the 63 Australians that lose their life each day to kidney related diseases.

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