Swapping Research for Running Shoes for KTDRA
On Sunday September 17th a number of dedicated Kidney, Transplant and Diabetes Research Australia (KTDRA) researchers and wider community took on the City to Bay Fun Run in Adelaide to raise vital funds for their own research.
The team were led by Nephrologist Dr Philip Clayton who is passionate about raising awareness around the need for more funding for research into chronic kidney disease and diabetes. In an incredible effort Dr Clayton and the team raised $2,020 for their own lifesaving research!
“Much of our research relies heavily on funding from KTDRA for which we are very grateful. Rather than just being a consumer of the funds I want to actively raise funds and awareness,” Dr Clayton said
Thank you Dr Clayton and the wider community for rallying together to help us fund more important research as we get closer to improving treatment and finding a cure for these chronic diseases.
