KHA kidney fundraising walk - Dr Richard Baer

Kidney Health Australia Research Walk

Taking part in the KHA walk brings people together, raises awareness of kidney disease and fundraisers much needed money for patient support services and research.

I would encourage people to join with  thousands across Australia  who participate in these events, who will ‘turn red’, dress in costume and walk in honour of Australians affected by kidney disease. Everyone who participates has a different journey and a different story to tell. They might have been personally affected or they are there to support a family member or friend.

It is a really fun day and a great reminder that you are not on this journey alone.
