The Big Red Kidney Walk brings the kidney community together to raise critical awareness and much needed funds to better treat and prevent kidney disease.

Across Australia, thousands of people will walk during September 2018 to show their support for kidney patients, families of people with kidney disease, and people at risk of developing kidney disease.

Over 1.7 million people are living with kidney disease across Australia right now.  Kidney Health Australia exists to help improve and extend as many lives affected by this terrible disease as possible, and your participation means we can continue being a lifeline for all Australians affected by kidney disease.

2018 will be the seventh year of the Big Red Kidney Walk, and with flagship events being held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, along with lots of other local events too, we’re determined to make this year bigger and better than ever.

Register now and you’ll be in for a guaranteed day of fun, laughter and electric atmosphere. Everyone wears red for the walk, there’s live music and entertainment, face painting for the kids and prizes for best dressed--both people and pooches!

Every dollar raised ensures Kidney Health Australia can continue to provide Kidney Transplant Houses for those recovering from kidney transplant surgery, mobile dialysis services so people with kidney disease can enjoy a holiday every once in a while, and Kidney Kids Camps so that children affected by kidney disease can spend time just being a kid again.

But we can’t do any of this without you. Australia it's time to take action. Register now, get your friends and family on board, and join us in the fight to beat kidney disease once and for all.
