WHY THESE Challenges !

This is to raise awareness and money for the Kidney Kamper. This is the brainchild of Rod Wade and is designed for those people and their families suffering kidney problems. The idea of the kamper is to allow people to go on holiday, visit interstate family and friends for weddings etc and get away from their daily routine and worries in a fully fitted out camper that has been specially designed with dialyses equipment. PLEASE DONATE HERE
