Wear a pair to show you care
There are over 25,000 people in Australia living with kidney failure. There is no cure. Dialysis or kidney transplantation are needed to stay alive.
This October our Kidney Community needs your support by joining a Red Socks Walk, registering your Red Socks Virtual Challenge, or buying a pair of Red Socks to proudly wear to raise vital funds to fight kidney disease.
We’re also excited to introduce our Kidney Health Australia Ambassador for the Red Socks Appeal, Michala Banas.
At the age of 6, Michala had most of her left kidney removed in a life-saving operation. She was born with a duplicated ureter (the tube from the kidney to the bladder), that wasn’t discovered until her body had nearly poisoned itself to death.
“Kidney health is something I absolutely don’t take for granted,” said Michala.
Michala is keen to shine a light on kidney disease and is urging Australians to support the Red Socks Appeal in October.
