Kidney failure is a serious concern in Singapore with nearly 5.5 new kidney failure patients in Singapore every day. The number of new cases has increased by about 60% over the past 10 years with diabetes being the No. 1 cause of kidney failure. More than half who have diabetes are unaware of their condition.
Run Inspired!, an inaugural virtual charity run organised by NKF, aims to achieve a collective distance of 55,000km to advocate kidney health as a nation and raise $200,000 which will go towards providing Artificial Kidneys (dialysers) that are crucial in patients' dialysis treatment to filter out waste and excess fluids.
Menarini Asia-Pacific, the main partner of Run Inspired! 2021, will be donating $2 for every km covered by participants, up to $100,000, increasing the impact of your participation.
There are 4 race categories to choose from: 5km, 10km, 21km and 55km. The race distance is cumulative over 21 days from 11th January to 31st January 2021.
With every race entry ticket and T-shirt purchased, you are also donating part of the sales proceeds towards providing Artificial Kidneys.
