My Activity Tracking


My target 60 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, walking or riding 60km I want to raise awareness of the 60hrs that kidney disease patients 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 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.

The Fun Begins

Monday 3rd Oct
A walk around the bridges alongside the beautiful Swan River on October 1 to kick start my endeavour. Perfect weather for walking and nine kilometres enough to start the ball rolling.

My 60km Walk

Sunday 18th Sep
I started modestly, hoping to raise $200 but with such an overwhelming response I soon realised that my goal was totally inadequate and added another zero to my aims to really inspire me to ‘walk the walk’. 

Now that my $2000 goal has been reached already and October is still days away I’ve increased my goal to $2500.

I’m so grateful to all the many friends and family who are supporting me in this effort to assist the Kidney Foundation. 
Kidney failure changes lives and support is very important.

Thank you to my Sponsors
