Step out in red and make a difference

Join us to raise awareness and vital funds to fight kidney disease.

On Sunday, 8 September 2019, step out in red at your local Big Red Kidney Walk. The Big Red Kidney Walk is Kidney Health Australia’s largest community fundraising event of the year, taking place every year in September.

You will be uniting with thousands of people across Australia to raise awareness and vital funds to support families affected by kidney disease.

Now in its eighth year, our five flagship walks will be held in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide. It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, or your fitness level, the Big Red Kidney Walk is for EVERYONE. It’s an opportunity to unite to support those affected by kidney disease.

2019 is set to be the biggest event yet. You will enjoy activities for the kids, live music and entertainment, as well as prizes for top fundraisers and best dressed.

If you can’t make one of our five flagship walks, you can host your own Big Red Kidney Walk or join a local community walk.
