900kms from the Gold Coast to Sydney to raise awareness of the need for donors
The aim of Walk To End The Wait was to increase the awareness of the need for Australians who have a desire to donate their organs, to have a conversation with their families, and register themselves, only one in three Australians are registered donors despite the majority (69 per cent) believing that registering is important.
There are around 1,650 Australians currently waitlisted for a transplant and more than 12,000 additional people on dialysis — many of whom may need a kidney transplant.
Now more than ever, we need more Australians to say “yes” to organ donation.
Thank you to everyone that supported my walk.
