Course length: 3.8km
What to expect:
- A sea of red! You can expect to see an incredible show of solidarity for people living with kidney disease and their families. Everyone wears red and many participants even dress up for the occasion. In the past we’ve had groups of Where’s Wally enthusiasts, superheroes, fairies, even Teletubbies! If you don’t own anything red, don’t worry--as an option for you we’ll have t-shirts available on the day.
- Live music and entertainment. Along with all the red costumes and entertainment, the vibe will be buzzing. There’s even face painting for the kids.
- Tasty food and beverages from our array of food vendors.
- Some gorgeous, furry friends. We welcome participants to bring their family pooch along to join the fun. They just need to be on a lead at all times, and owners need to bring some plastic bags to pick after their pooch if necessary.
- Awesome prizes for the best-dressed red-themed participants--both individual and group. And even prizes for the pooches who get in on the dress-up action.
- A beautiful, scenic walk around Melbourne’s iconic Royal Botanic Gardens. The walk is gentle and suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels. It’s also pram and wheelchair friendly.

We absolutely need to raise more awareness of kidney disease, but it’s most important that we raise money to actually deliver Kidney Health Australia’s services that help support and save the lives of people with kidney disease. Don’t be shy raising money for charity is such a wonderful feeling, and every donation over $2 is tax deductible. Read our fundraising tips for more information.
